That $500 billion being cut

is to the overly expensive, privatized Medicare Advantage plans. The cut will greatly reduce payments made to these programs for providing such goodies as gym memberships to recipients. These privatized programs were intended to lure younger, healthier Medicare recipients away from standard Medicare. The result would be to weaken standard Medicare by siphoning off funds needed to provide care for all.

Democrats who voted for the Ryan budget are seriously misinformed.
