Mitt Romney on Medicare

Mitt Romney on Medicare

The night before the Florida Primary Mitt Romney changed his position on Medicare. He said that, if elected he “will never go after Medicare or Social Security. We will protect those programs.”

Less than a month ago Mr. Romney was supporting Represenative Paul Ryan’s plan to phase out the current Medicare system by 2022 and replace it with a voucher system (seniors would be given vouchers by the government to purchase private insurance).

We changed Mr. Romney’s position on from “dismantle to program completely” to keep the medicare program “as is.”

If elected President do you believe Mitt Romney will keep Medicare intact or kill off the program completely?
