Opinion: Don't rule out anything on Medicare

US News & World Report, July 18, 2014

Unfortunately, a new Senate bill would put up roadblocks on the path to reform by ruling out potential Medicare solutions. Although the Congressional Budget Office's new long-run budget outlook is slightly less dire than last year's outlook, the agency continues to project explosive Medicare spending growth over the next 75 years.
