RoJo, totally off message, says Ryancare is a voucher

While Paul Ryan was at the White House whining that Democrats are calling his Medicare plan a voucher program, Sen. Ron Johnson, soon to be Wisconsin's senior Senator, was at the Appleton Post Crescent.

Johnson, asked what he liked about Ryan's plan, said:

What I like about the Paul Ryan plan is it's trying bring a little bit of free- market principles back into Medicare.

If you need subsidized care, we'll give you vouchers. You figure out how you want to spend. You select what insurance carrier you want to use. It's a start.
Greg Sargent at the Washington Post has a little fun with it.
