Just Who Is Throwing Who Off The Cliff?

The newest deception of the left is the Ryan plan on Medicare reform.  The much maligned plan by the progressive left does nothing to change the elements of the current plan for those within 10 years to eligibility age of 65.  Those who are currently younger than 55 will have a sliding voucher system (based on income) that will provide up to $15 thousand per year to buy insurance at open market.  This is similar to what members of Congress currently enjoy.  The idea is to introduce competition in order to drive insurance costs down - the only way the pending default of Medicare can be averted because the market forces always work if the government does not meddle in free markets with destructive regulations.

So, how do progressives fight this proposal?  Here is their latest:

The group is aptly named The Agenda Project.  The Agenda in question is spreading collectivist statism.

My question to those who can still think for themselves is just who is throwing who over the cliff?  Republicans like Paul Ryan who want to ensure solvency of the program or progressive Democrats who want status quo, which even the Medicare's own actuaries say will result in the collapse of the system in less than 14 years?
