    I don't think that Ryan said that last night. Do you have a link?

      MS. RADDATZ: Let me ask you this: what is your specific plan for seniors who really can't afford to make up the difference in the value of what you call a premium support plan and others call a voucher?

      REP. RYAN: A hundred percent coverage for them.


      But don't worry. If you can't make up the difference between the Romney/Ryan "premium support" and the actual cost of health insurance, Mitt will just come over on Christmas with his boys and his wife and promise to pay for it himself.

        100% covered! Sounds great!

        Devil being in the details and all...about where do you draw the line to say who can afford to pay the difference and who can't?

        To me, that looks like a situation custom-made to put the elderly in the same situation many working poor find themselves in: too rich to qualify for Medicaid and not rich enough to actually pay the premium.
