I want to shout, “I’d likely be dead in 6-12 months, if you eliminated Medicare!”

But I know proponents of abolishing Medicare are not interested in the human, “soft” side of the story.

This informative article about proposals to change or scrap Medicare, with criticism backed by solid data, is very helpful. The analysis not only indicates that these proposals are untenable; we are also given logical reasons why these ideas are poor policy.

Armed with this information, we can engage in more constructive dialogue with proponents of short-sighted policy changes. Thank you, Ian Millhiser . Namasté.
