Wait...Medicare Is The Problem??
So if I understand this correctly, the discussion is how to cut spending on Medicare...how about Medicaid, food stamps, HUD and every other entitlement program? Perhaps I am callous but I would rather see an able bodied adult have to scrape to make ends meet than an elderly person.
According to the article Medicare receives 51% of it's funding via taxes so it is presumable that the other 49% comes from non-tax venues. Welfare can not make that claim.
"Amidst the uncertainties of war, every soldier is entitled to one certainty...that he will not be forgotten.
Poor is the nation that has no heroes, shameful is the one that, having them...forgets."
I would also rather see medicaid cut over medicare. I guess you can make the argument that medicare is helping children as well, non elderly should be able to make ends meet easier than the elderly.
