Grace-Marie Turner, president of the Galen Institute, wrote a commentary this week in support of House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan's proposal to implement premium support for Medicare. She makes the case that, "Ryan is working to save Medicare with his proposal to begin modernizing the program through premium support."
"Opponents of the proposal have charged that Ryan is planning to voucherize Medicare. But that shows a misunderstanding of the proposal.
