Voted to kill Medicare: Lee Terry, Jeff Fortenberry, Adrian Smith, Steve King and Tom Latham

Nebraska/Iowa Republicans who voted to kill Medicare (clockwise from upper left):
Steve King (5th district, Iowa), Adrian Smith (3rd District, Nebraska),
Lee Terry (2nd district, Nebraska), Tom Latham (4th District, Iowa),
Jeff Fortenberry (1st District, Nebraska)
Via Americablog comes the news that 235 Republicans supported the Medicare elimination bill, with just four GOPers casting a vote to leave Medicare unmolested. Five of the usual suspects, the Nebraska/Iowa gang of five, above, were among the supporters of the House Republican plan which:
repeals traditional Medicare and replaces it with a health insurance voucher that loses its value over time. Because the value of the Republicans’ privatized Medicare replacement does not keep up with the cost of health care, their plan will gradually eliminate Medicare because its increasingly worthless vouchers will eventually only cover a very tiny fraction of the cost of a health insurance plan.
