We’ve been entreated to a torrent of polls showing how everyone hates Ryan’s Medicare reform plan. However, the fatal flaw with every one of those surveys is that they offer the respondents a false choice between doing nothing or Ryan’s reforms. Well, in a society where everyone is reared to believe that Medicare is sacrosanct, what else would you expect? Of course they want the status quo.
Reason-Rupe tried something different. They gave voters a choice between two reform plans; Medicare reforms built around giving seniors a credit to purchase health insurance over reforms like President Obama’s, which include a payment board to reduce payments to providers. Voters supported Ryan’s free market approach by a margin of 48-37.
