This is merely a random thought that has been devoloping over the weekend. I oppose universal healthcare. I feel that it is a grand idea, but impractical in execution in our current society. So in that line of thought, if it were to be implemented, why do we need a seperate plan that would cost us an assload of money? Wouldn't it be more financially prudent to simply erase the age provision from medicare? The apparatus is already in place. It would need an influx of new funding, but it would still be a hell of alot cheaper than what is beng tossed around. Just a thought.
