We are stuck behind a rock and a hard place. Medicare costs are going to skyrocket under the current system. However, I agree with you that this is going to greatly diminish the ability for poorer and lower middle class individuals to purchase adequate coverage. And with much higher administrative costs, even less money will be available for actual healthcare with private insurance companies running the show. When Grandma needs constant medical care and the policy has paid out its maximum, what are the insurance companies going to do with Grandma? I guess we will see the real death panels then, but at least they won't be administered by some bureaucrat; it'll be a caring private insurer instead.
While I can see this working to reduce government costs, it won't reduce the costs to individuals. We will just be paying a great deal more to private insurers and probably will receive less for our money. If this is passed and put into effect, I can see this being the trigger that will eventually lead us to a single payer plan.
Don't blame it on Ryan. Asswipe stole 960 Billion dollars from seniors so he could curry favor with illegals.
The counter question to the OP is: Who wants to help GE generate more tax free profits?
What if they phased out Medicare but enabled adult children (what an oxymoron, eh?) to put their parents (over a certain age . . .) onto their (the adult childrens) health care plan, much like adult children can keep their adult children on their health care plan till the kids are 26? Just thinking out loud here . . . .
That's just fine and dandy, but what happens to the one's that never had children or their children died before they do?
I'd kill both my grandmothers if they weren't dead already.
My mother's mother was an insufferable manipulative XXXX-Meister of the first order. Her idea of fun was squirting the oil from a lemon peel in your eye.
I never even met my father's mother. Any woman who wants nothing to do with the child of her son who was KIA doesn't deserve to live IMO.
So there's nothing sacred about grandmothers in my book.
Kill them all and decrease the surplus population.
