What About Medicare?



While our nation wrangles over Social Security, which will remain solvent for decades, medicare will dip into its trust fund in approximately six years. Are we faced with a Social Security crisis? Sure. Are we faced with a Medicare catastrophe? Yup. Can someone please explain why we're choosing to ignore Medicare???

I have no idea why we - as a nation - are choosing to ignore the problem. All I can say is it's a mess. Whatever made the government of the most powerful nation in the free world think it could run an insurance program is beyond me. I continued to be mystified....and will not count on it being there when we need it.

You make a good point, Merry. The best solution involves personal responsibility. Unfortunately the responsible always end up paying for the irresponsible.
