On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about the Medicare system--how it currently functions and how it was changed under the Affordable Care Act.  Republican VP candidate Paul Ryan has proposed a privatized voucher system.  But critics say that could quickly become unaffordable for most seniors.  If you’re on Medicare or will be soon, what’s your opinion of how it should work?  Join us at 10am PST or post a comment here.  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
