EXCERPT:

RYAN: "There will be a $25 billion cut to the Medicare program which is going to affect Medicare recipients who are getting cancer drugs. Talk about hitting home. These entitlements and these health care programs, primarily Medicare and Medicaid, we have to deal with those issues of us having a very unhealthy country. We have half the country that has either diabetes or pre-diabetes. That in and of itself will sink the health care programs here in the United States. That’s part of a broader strategy we need to have in the United States that speaks to our food system, speaks to our agricultural subsidy system, speaks to what we feed our kids in our schools, how much sugar is put, additive sugar is put in all of these products that give these kids in our society diabetes. That’s the real strategy that we need to talk about, not just whacking Medicare so cancer patients can’t get their drugs."
