"...your increasing premiums are a tax that you are paying to cover the losses that are Medicare and Medicaid."Of course, Team Obama says, "Never waste a crisis":
"Ok, so now- how can anyone not see the obvious outcome? Government patients = significant loss of profitability. Initally the private insurers will do their best to continue to subsidize this loss, and there will be a huge escalation of premiums. But within a few months this will be unsustainable....Here's the problems with Medicare and Social Security:
.....creating health care delivery and access to care crises; Where can you go to get care?; Loss of access reported nationwide....."
Medicare's future liabilities are far more ominous, at more than $89 trillion. Medicare's total unfunded liability is more than five times larger than that of Social Security. In fact, the new Medicare prescription drug benefit enacted in 2006 (Part D) alone adds some $17 trillion to the projected Medicare shortfall - an amount greater than all of Social Security's unfunded obligations. (THANKS GEORGE! - This is one of the reasons why Republicans lost.)
Tell me again why this government control of health care is such a good idea? Has there EVER been a government program that came in at the predicted costs, much less reduced the national debt? EVER?
So, all you Deemocrats out there............F........well, I can't write it......but you get the drift.....
