House Speaker Paul Ryan is looking for support from his fellow lawmakers on a plan that would re-design medicare and social security. Ryan's reform plan would require seniors to buy plans from a privatized market by using vouchers--something most democrats and even a handful of republicans say they're against. While Ryan has said social security and medicare are failing at the expense of Obamacare, opponents of his plan say privatizing medicare would put the financial burden on the country's sick and elderly. Michael Burgess, the former Director for the Office of Aging, discusses the issue.
