Hypocracy? You be the judge

If you’ve been following my blog, you know that one of the major critics of the Ryan Medicare plan is Harvard’s David Cutler.  Avik Roy revealed in yesterday’s Forbes online that Cutler along with Jonathan Gruber  (MIT economist) proposed a similar premium support plan for Medicare in 2010.  At the time the two were Obama advisers and recommended similar “privatization” for Medicaid and SCHIP.  It’s time for Obama to admit that the Ryan plan is a legitimate option that should be considered or just pretend that he didn’t read the memo.  You can read Roy’s article at http://www.forbes.com/sites/aroy/2012/09/13/top-obama-advisers-proposed-voucherizing-medicare-way-back-in-2010/.
