Letter to the Editor: Resident has questions and concerns about Medicare

E-mail Print PDF

April 14, 2011

To the Editor:

Medicare - do you have it? Do you want to keep it? Do you want it available to your friends, your children - your grandchildren? Are you paying into the Medicare Fund now or, if you are retired, while you were working? If you are retired and drawing Social Security do you pay a Medicare premium?

Why are we hearing Medicare being framed as a "giveaway" program? Why is the Republican budget proposal aiming to replace Medicare with private insurance plans? If Medicare is indeed very costly, why did the Republicans complain about reforms to Medicare during the Healthcare Reform debate?
