NO, MEDICARE IS NOT FREE! We have to pay a monthly premium…like any insurance. Then there are co-pays. Not all procedures are covered. Services can be rendered and months later Medicare decides not to pay. NO, MEDICARE IS NOT FREE! So, Republicans, stop thinking the middle class is getting a free ride with this most successful federal program. Without Medicare there will be log jams at all of our emergency rooms when the elderly get sick. And, you have to pay for the ambulance. Reform Medicare. Don’t kill it!
Also, it is incredible that one federal agency, The VA is allowed to buy generic medicines in bulk and Medicare is not. IBM went this route decades ago and this reduces healthcare costs. This is a doable reform that Congress should enact.
