Fourth Congressional District Democrat candidate Teresa Hensley hosted a forum on Medicare for seniors in Columbia Wednesday. She focused primarily on her disapproval of Republican Vice President Candidate Paul Ryan’s Medicare budget, and the health care reform act. Hensley says privatizing Medicare is unrealistic for seniors.
“What we’re talking about is giving a senior a voucher for them to go find their own health care, to talk to their own insurance companies to find their own health insurance,” Hensley says.
