A va­ri­ety of pre­mium-sup­port mod­els for Medi­care are float­ing around D.C. these days, but de­tails are sketchy. How­ever, now is the time for dis­cussing such changes, ac­cord­ing to one au­thor, Sen. Ron Wy­den, left, be­cause un­less law­mak­ers make fun­da­men­tal changes, they must make in­cre­men­tal cuts “that will hurt se­niors, will hurt health­care providers, and that will es­sen­tially con­tinue un­til the Medi­care guar­an­tee—and I use this word specif­i­cally—has been va­por­ized.”
