Jeb Bush Quietly Suggests Phasing Out Medicare

GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush suggested that the United States should figure out a way to phase out Medicare, the federal program that provides insurance to more than 50 million elderly and disabled people, at a political event on Wednesday night.

..

MSNBC reports that Bush was speaking at an event sponsored by Americans for Prosperity, a right-wing group backed by the billionaire Koch Brothers that has doggedly advocated against fully implementing the Affordable Care Act.

..

In his comments, Bush referenced Rep. Paul Ryans (R-WI) politically contentious plan to radically restructure the Medicare program which independent analysts predicted would more than double health costs for the average 65-year-old and criticized progressive lawmakers for failing to engage with Ryans proposals. Despite recent evidence that the programs finances are secure, the former Florida governor suggested that Medicare isnt solvent.

As MSNBCs Steve Benen points out, the position that the United States should end Medicare altogether is radical even among Republicans, who typically avoid taking the stance that the massive federal health program should be eliminated.

..

GOP lawmakers have pushed back on Democrats characterization that Ryans proposal to privatize Medicare amounts to ending the program as we know it, maintaining that they simply want to reform it. Even so, efforts to implement those reforms have been unsuccessful in Congress, largely because the health program is very popular among seniors and talking about changing it can be a political liability. This spring, Republicans quietly dropped the proposed policy in budget negotiations, and analysts predicted that the party might finally be giving up the fight against Medicare.
