If you are a baby boomer who worked all yer life,and you all paid billions of buxks taxes to soc. sec. and medicare, your insurance money was stolen by Democrats(Obama) to be transferred to AFORDABLE CARE INSURANCE--where the very poorest non work people get it.That was to be 700 billion bucks over 10 yrs. ALL THAT TRILLION or close amt, has all been used, ACI IS BROKE.it has not been relegated any new funds.

 

however, we now realize this "sending tons of taxes to the fed. for medical insuramce" does not work; SEVERAL senators told AARP MEMBERS all the lock boxes for medicare and  soc, sec, were raided, stolen by our political leaders we voted in. --THAT IS WHY IT IS SHORT. --NOT BECAUSE THERE ARE TOO MANY SENIORS.

 

You want our advice?  You won't like it.It involves millions of taxpayers revolting--and would be an organized nation wide action of no longer paying our fed.. taxes--none of them. (Altho grass roots is best) We do NOT HAVE ANY OTHER POWER--OUR VOTES are useless! but the work class and middle class atill pay most taxes to support the fed. govt.---yes, there is your power--together. MONEY TALKS. I advise very active seniors groups to organize "below the grid" not use the Net,and start planning.I am NOT JOKING.

 

the only other tool would be, all you seniors who have sons and daughters,Espec. younger,(and other relatives in all military)--talk to these relatives.--The fed needs a big bunch of soldiers.--But how would all these military relatives like seeing granddad and grandma, affter work a lifetime, be dumped out on the trash heap of medical care? huh?It is bad enough what the VA members get stuck with---how do they like seeing loved old onea, who worked all their lives, screwed by the fed?--adter it took all their money?

 

Your relatives in the military fight all these foreign wars--go ahead, phone em,write em email em, ect ect. Talk to em.The fed. still needs them to fight, no?And why should they kill themselves, when their repayment is to have mom,or dad,or the grandparents, having their medicare and/or soc. sec. stolen?--and their realatives left to die?I know if I were in the military, I might think about a "blue flu"(police members strike) or part of one. Or,howver it atriikes them. Let your discussion with military relatives be YOUR PRIVATE BUSINESS. --between you all.

 

But you all have power--you just have to level it at the right point with the right tools.--if that sounds very "military-ish" so be it.Think  Ghandi. ---or however you like--just realize those 2 areas of power are there. YOU ALL HAVE THEM.--and they are important to the fed. govt. Without a lot of tax money, that fed. is no longer so powerful. And having a huge military force that obeys, is also very important to the fed. govt. Those 2 depts, are a big bargaining point.

What is wrong with Medicare, in your opinion?

 

One particular Part - A,B,C, or D -

How you get your benefit - original Medicare or Medicare Advantage

Or just all of it.

 

Is it what you were expecting when you came onboard to the whole program?  

 

Do you have health needs that are not covered?  What value would you out on these needs that are not met?

 

Would you be willing to do things that would save the program money?

Like in original Medicare, picking a personal care physician and be required to get referrals through him/her before you see a specialist.

 

How are the various associated cost for you? In Parts A,B,C and D?

 

So in your opinion -'What, if anything, is wrong with Medicare?

 

 


Gail, If Medicare didn't exist seniors would die in the streets. So, let's go from there.  
There are many things that Medicare lacks, we all know about that and that is the reason for having Supplements, and Medicare Advantage programs What is appalling that any of this happens in the richest country of this world. sometimes I thinks we live in Zimbawe or in the jungles of Brazil or in any other country in which people don't have access to health care. in this country  Health care is not considered a right.  but a privilege. so we should start from there.
Even in Saudi Arabia today, they are actually dealing withe their corruption that exists in that country. And taking action to stop it.
But in the US. wed seem to become paralyzed when it comes to Health Care.
Some want more and some think we have too much.
The inequality that exists for people over 65 is appalling. and you know it as well as I do.
And now, it's going to get a lot worse. But, I am planning on sitting down and laughing at all the people when they prepare their 2018 taxes and really see what is going to happen to them.
So, what is wrong with Medicare? Congress, the Senate, The President of the United States. because none of them want to do what needs to be done, so that American citizens have the health care that they deserve.

My concern is about medication that is needed by organ transplant patients.  Immune suppressents are required to control organ rejection that can cause the new transplanted organ to fail resulting in possible death or other illnesses.  For example, the brand name is Prograf ( aka tacrolimus) that causes kidney damage after using for a number of years.
