Then whence all the horror stories? I am not yet on medicare, but I have relied on the VA, and I can tell you, it ISN'T wonderful.

<<the Bureaucrats run it so 
much better than the doctors, hospitals & insurance companies>>
Take off the pink glasses. I know better than this.

You pay for the lazy obese smoker now - in the premium charged by your 
insurance company -- PLUS a profit for the shareholders of the insurance 
company. A single payer system would eliminate all that. I have been on 
Medicare for 15 years & it is WONDERFUL!!!  The politicans can't touch it 
(any more than they can change Social Security), the Bureaucrats run it so 
much better than the doctors, hospitals & insurance companies (all profit 
motivated). I am not sure this is a topic for Freethinkers (in my view very 
intelligent & progressive - that's why I am here) but I like the 
discussion..
