Rep. Van Hollen: Ryan plan will have ‘terrible consequences’

President Obama Campaign Surrogate Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) details the differences between how the Affordable Care Act and Paul Ryan’s plan would affect Medicare.

Rep. Van Hollen says, “And the issue of course during the campaign here is going to be what the American people think about the plan that [Ryan’s] authored because as Nan [Hayworth] said, he is the chief architect of the House Republican plan. It’s a very ideological plan. It’s a very right wing plan. And I think it would have terrible consequences for the vast majority of the American people.”
