Hey, Paul Ryan...we can't run out of money. Dollars are created when the government spends and that's the only way they can be created, so there's no risk of not being able to "pay" for entitlements.
That's point number one.
Point number two is that Medicare is eminently sustainable so long as we have the real assets (hospitals, doctors, nurses, technicians, medicine, etc) for people to consume. The only possible way that Medicare could not be sustained is if these assets were unavailable for some reason and that is not the case. And by the way, Alan Greenspan schooled you on this a while back.
Paul Ryan will never wake up to these facts. He's a blind, ideologue. He's a little boy who read a book a long time ago and now has the crazy beliefs of that book deeply embedded in his mind.
The sad part is that the people of this country beleive him. They believe him because they have been brainwashed into believing all that hogwash about running out of money and "not being able to afford" Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. These have been some of the most succesful social programs this country has ever seen and millions of Americans have been kept out of poverty thanks to them. Yet despite this, Ryan and the GOP want to do away with them for reasons that are both ideological and irrational.
The powers that be love Ryan. He's their handome and "brilliant" messenger. But when we have millions of sick and homeless, then and only then will we will feel the REAL cost to society. It will be a burden that dwarfs any purported burden we face now.
In Paul Ryan the GOP have chosen a plan, but is it a plan whose ultimate consequences they truly understand?
