Get Ready to Tap Into Your Savings for Romney-Ryan Medicare

Infographic courtesy of the Center for American Progress Action Fund

If you're curious how much more the Romney-Ryan Medicare plan will cost you, the Center for American Progress Action Fund has a new infographic which spells out exactly what you'd be paying for health care. It's not pretty. 

For someone who is currently 48, that person would have to save an additional $124,600 to cover health care costs during retirement under the Romney-Ryan plan. 

Vice presidential contender Paul Ryan's plan for Medicare involves giving seniors coupons (vouchers) to purchase private or traditional Medicare plans. These vouchers are designed to cover less and less each year, thus leaving seniors with high medical bills when their voucher doesn't cover the premiums.
