Ok, all this healthcare talk has gotten me a little confused lately. Granted, I'm not American, but from what I understand, Medicare is a social insurance sort of program for old peeps (65+) and employers pay some small payroll tax to keep it going. So, from an outsider's perspective, it seems kind of curious that Medicare is simultaneously touted as good and people are afraid of a new health care system dismantling it while at the same time saying that anything government-run is a failure. So, we've got a lot of old people here from what I recall and I'm wondering: How many of you are on Medicare, and how many of you are "fairly" satisfied with how it's going? Is it a terrible drag or does it cover most of what you need? Do you even philosophically agree that there should be government health "plan"/"system"/"thing" for people over 65? Just wondering.
