I've read through all of these emails only to find that the whole current system is just one big mess.What we need is:1. One place to go with the same information for every US citizen.2. A US health care system that encourages healthy choices; pays the doctor, hospital, and drug bills when needed to stay alive.3. Gets rid of the current myriad of private plans and business plans except for coverage not provided by item 2.4. A system that does not have special rules (Medicaid for the destitute) nor encourage or forces one to become destitute just to stay alive.5. A system that fairly arbitrates and resolves issues6. An automated system that answers the majority of questions without requiring a service representative.I've been bombarded with Medicare information, mostly about part D. I still know nothing about the other parts.I turn 65 next month and plan to work until 66. But it appears that, if I apply for Medicare, I will loose my employer provided Blue Cross Blue Shield. This would include my wife's coverage. She does not have enough credits to get Medicare and won't even be eligible for two more years. If I do not apply for Medicare and get laid off during the year I would have to rely on Cobra which is very expensive.I guess all Republicans are rich or very healthy. I don't see how anyone else can afford to be a Republican! But since I'm still an Independent I guess I've not given up all hope that Republicans will not block this important issue.
I'm not sure about medicare A and B ,but with D (persp.) if your present plan is as good (according to Medicare) there is no penalty for a later sign up. Yuo'l have to check on A and B. You have a limited time after 65 to get a free physical and sign up for coverage ordinarily.
It's not a party problem ,Congress is ill equiped to handle the topic or withstand the lobbyists in general.
