"Trust me. I'm a doctor." Ever heard that one? Well, in the case of Dr. Dan Beneshek, don't believe it. The Republican voucher plan that he supports will make health care virtually unaffordable for our children and grandchildren when they retire. It's "carte blanche" for insurance companies to slowly (or quickly) raise their rates beyond what middle income retirees can afford. Do you really believe that the value of the vouchers will keep up with insurance premium increases? If they did, they would cost far more than Medicare as we know it would cost. Of course, by then we will probably have a Democratic Congress for the Republicans to blame.
