Ron Wyden Blasts Paul Ryan For Claiming Bipartisanship On Medicare

Posted by | August 13, 2012 19:59 | Filed under: Top Stories

Mitt Romney has been claiming that Oregon Senator Ron Wyden signed onto Paul Ryan’s Medicare plan, but Wyden put out a statement saying it isn’t so.

Ryan and Wyden did work together in December 2011 to develop a paper outlining ways to provide for Medicare solvency, including a “premium support” model. Under premium support, Medicare would allow a menu of competing plans to offer coverage with government payments. Wyden, however, never signed on to support the House-adopted budget resolution written by Ryan that included plans for a premium support approach.

“Gov. Romney needs to learn you don’t protect seniors by makings things up, and his comments today sure won’t help promote real bipartisanship,” Wyden said.
