Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is not only offering policy change, but “a dramatic change in perspective and philosophy.” Under his proposal, the government would offer a fixed amount of money for each Medicare beneficiary, and future beneficiaries can use the money to go with a private insurer or contribute toward Medicare.
