Handy-dandy interactive map shows the impact to each Congressional District of the Medicare and Medicaid cuts that Paul Ryan is trying to make you believe is really no change at all.
Ryan's 1st District here.
Tammy Baldwin's 2nd District here with just a few highlights.
• Deny 580,000 individuals age 54 and younger in the district access to
Medicare’s guaranteed benefits.
• Increase the out-of-pocket costs of health coverage by over $6,000 per
year in 2022 and by almost $12,000 per year in 2032 for the 117,000 individuals
in the district who are between the ages of 44 and 54.
• Require the 117,000 individuals in the district between the ages of 44
and 54 to save an additional $27.3 billion for their retirement – an average of
$182,000 to $287,000 per individual – to pay for the increased cost of health
coverage over their lifetimes. Younger residents of the district will have to
save even higher amounts to cover their additional medical costs.
• Raise the Medicare eligibility age by at least one year to age 66 or
more for 65,000 individuals in the district who are age 44 to 49 and by two
years to age 67 for 460,000 individuals in the district who are age 43 or
All the rest.
