Hey, Trump voters! Paul Ryan is already coming for your Medicare.

Medicare has got some serious problems because of ObamaCare. Those things are part of our plan to replace ObamaCare. [Fox News]

These are lies. Medicare already has price controls, and in fact ObamaCare probably improved the fiscal position of Medicare and Medicaid. Health care price inflation has been unprecedentedly low since its passage, likely because it contained many cost control measures which appear to be working pretty well. Therefore, repealing it would massively increase the fiscal problems with government health insurance, and bring back the predictions of long-term explosions in deficits.
