Finally, as Democrats attempted to shift attention from their own unpopular law, Chairman Ryan contrasted the Medicare reforms he's introduced, which protect those 55 and over, with the cuts and government price controls in the Democrats' law, which would affect seniors today:
"Do we empower consumers, or do we price-control from the government? What works best? ... Medicare is the biggest driver of our debt. We're all kidding ourselves if we think the program can just go on as is, and the sooner we address this the better off everybody is -- the better we can guarantee my mom, who's been on it for a number of years, and everybody else's mom and dad, can have the program they organized their lives around, and that future retirees have a program they actually can count on. That's the purpose of this particular bill that I introduced, and that's hopefully the purpose of what we're all trying to achieve."
