That's pretty liberal usage of the phrase "a Medicare program."

An effective privatization of Medicare means that it is no longer Medicare. It becomes a premium support model, which is not what the Medicare we know is, even if we decide to keep calling it Medicare.

So to answer mylonsd: yes, Republicans want to cut a program they've been paying into for years and years. They want to replace it with a premium support model.
