In April, the Republican Majority in the House of Representatives passed a radical plan to eliminate Medicare
as we know it and replace it with a voucher program.Seniors would use their own money, along with a government voucher to purchase insurance from private insurance companies. I strongly oppose efforts to create a "voucher" system that effectively wipes out Medicare's guaranteed health care benefits and would increase the average senior citizen's costs by $6,300 per year, according to the Joint Economic Committee.
