The Medicare Plan (www.budget.org & announced on CNN & FNN) is very important to senior citizens (Medicare Recipients). If looked at in detail, we believe seniors will have cut back in their care if they are seriously sick. We hope AARP will not go along with the Democrats on this plan. We believe this will shorten the lives of baby boomers. We know about the medical care of veterans and because of the governments budget for veterans hospitals & doctors are limited to what they can give to veterans. Medicare will end up like this. We need to watch this plan carefully and not let be passed behind closed doors. We also have friends that lived in Canada under socialized medical care, to get care for serious illness, they had to come to the US for the newest and best treatments. We need to really listen and read all we can about this new plan. We think health care will now be directed to the younger/youngest citizens because we are baby boomers because there are so many of us.
If indeed the target is the younger but it isn't children. They don't pay for insurance and they are heavier users of the insurance system as people over about 45. It's true that the Boomer ranks are getting older and will soon be overloading the current healthcare system excuse me, insurance system. Yes, our current healthcare system is not about health but insurance. Ages 18-40 are the best bet for the insurance companies because they pay into insurance more than they use it. It's a dollar game. We need healthcare reform so it isn't designed around insurance companies and their profits. Nothing against making money I love to, but not at the expense of people's lives. GAG
