Claim: Romney "Would Turn Medicare Into a Voucher Program."

Mostly True: Fact-checkers say Obama's voucher claim is a reasonable way to describe the Romney-Ryan plan, which allows beneficiaries "the choice of receiving a fixed subsidy from the federal government that could go toward a private insurance plan or a plan similar to traditional Medicare," Politifact.com writes. It isn't clear whether the premium plan would cover the same benefits as traditional Medicare.
