  1. Joe S. says:

    On Medicare, I think access is going to get worse and worse.

  2. Ken says:

    Once the Democrats in Congress create their (Medicare for nonseniors) public plan, access to care is going to get a whole lot worse for the elderly. Not everybody can pay below market rates for care. The more people that try, the worse the rationing problem is going to get.

  3. Vicki says:

    So much for all those doctors who think quality would improve if we just adopt the Canadian system.

    First let’s look at the aumont of fraud in Medicare and Medicaid, the US Gov’t. has paid out trillions in bogus claims with never so much as a blink. When these are uncovered I have never seen where there was any pay back. I am a nurse and I know there were several cases in Fl. paid to bogus docs, just recently uncoverd were thousands going to a store front bogus operation. The Gov’t. cannot run anything, Soc. sec. is suppose to be a seperate fund, if you or I took money with promise of future payments and did what US gov’t has done we would be jailed. If SS was run as intended an individual would never use what he paid in, the interest would take care of it. Does healthcare need modification, YES, these companies have gotten greedy, early on they were non profit, then others decided to get in the health Ins. bus. and rates soared and people demanded more benifits, a vicous circle. I firmly believe the US GOv’t. needs to stay out of the Insurance business and get out of the Automobile and banking business, they are driving our economy into bankruptcy.
