Keith Rothfus today spoke at the Republican National Convention touting his support for a plan to end Medicare as we know it by turning it into a voucher program which will cost seniors an additional $6,400 per year in order to pay for more tax cuts for the wealthy.

Rothfus spoke in support of the Rothfus-Ryan plan just a day after it was revealed that the Republican Party platform called for changing the structure of Medicare to a privatized model that gives seniors vouchers to purchase private health insurance.

In contrast, I received the Social Security and Medicare Hero Award from the Alliance for Retired Americans and sponsored legislation that prohibits funds to be spent on developing or implementing a system that cuts Medicare benefits, eliminates guaranteed health coverage for seniors or creates a voucher plan.
