The changes include: offering senior citizens federal assistance to purchase private health insurance instead of Medicare; allotting money to seniors based on income; and increasing the age of eligibility for Medicare by two months per year until it hits 67 in 2033. These changes would take effect in 2022 (impacting anyone currently 55 years of age or younger.)

Ryan and his supporters argue the changes are not radical and are necessary to reduce federal spending.
