How Romney & Ryan Will Rob Your Retirement

As you know, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have a plan to end Medicare as we know it and turn it into a voucher program. This won’t do a thing to control health care costs, it will simply shift them onto seniors now and well into the future.

A new study out today shows just how devastating these costs increases could be — particularly for middle-aged people who don’t really have the time to save to make up for the difference. And the worst part of it all is that the Romney-Ryan plan is picking your pocket to give millionaires Romney and Ryan another huge tax break.

Check out this infographic to see how much Romney and Ryan will rob your retirement to pay for new tax breaks for themselves.
