[T]he latest Washington Post/ABC News poll included a question about the Ryan budget. The phrasing, I think, was as vague and favorable as Republicans could hope for: “ Republicans in the House of Representatives approved a budget plan that would change Medicare, the government health insurance program for the elderly. These changes would affect Americans currently under age 55. From what you’ve heard about it, do you support or oppose this new plan for Medicare?” Nevertheless, 49 percent opposed it and only 32 percent supported it.
Of course, it’s not true at all that people over 55 wouldn’t pay more under RyanCare.
