Can seniors currently buy private insurance with coverage like medicare?
He has asked the GOP to fights attacks against his plan.
“If you just play defense or ignore this, they’re going
to define this, they’re going to demagogue you and they’ll get away
with it,” Ryan told reporters Thursday during a breakfast sponsored by
the Christian Science Monitor. “And they’ll scare seniors.”
“I’m excited about it,” Ryan added.
Ryan said the May 2011 special election in New York, where now Rep.
Kathy Hochul and fellow Democrats seized on the Medicare issue to win
control of the traditionally GOP district, taught Republicans to play
offense on health care.
