Ryan Plan Vouchers:

Okay, so I'm running into a story about Ryan complaining that his Medicare proposal is being called a "voucher plan" (see: http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/164213-white-house-on-ryans-medicare-reforms-it-is-a-voucher-plan). Now, I thought that was essentially what it was. However, in none of these stories can I find his argument as to why it isn't a voucher plan. Can someone please enlighten me?
 
Knowing Ryan, it's because he says it's not a voucher plan, and not a real argument.

Its a "Premium Savings" plan...

Why not call it a coupon instead?

Premium Support, I believe, is the phrase he uses. Which means it must be completely different!

 
Okay, so I guess my question is what's the difference between a voucher plan and a premium support plan?

Nothing. I would dearly like to sound impartial, but I really can't in this situation: Its calling a gun a superhappy funtoy. Its rebranding it so it sounds less like what it is so that it goes down well.

I assume you have seen statistics on the/from the Congressional Budget Office, right? It provides the most impartial statistics on political policies.

Not directly, actually. If you could link me to a sum-up, I'd be really grateful.

here's a link to the CBO's website. I haven't tried to navigate it yet, but it seems to have a simple layout.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
