I’m unsure of what the “health care crisis” is all about in the first place. I, for one, am happy with my Harvard Pilgrim HMO, my PCP, and the service I receive.
Then I look at the terrible shape Medicare is in. I went through caring for my grandmother and observed how f’d up Medicare is.
So what it has lower administrative costs. If it’s such a great system, why does it have an unfunded liability of $74 TRILLION. That’s TRILLION, with a “T”.
And $60 billion annually in fraudulent claims paid out. The FBI even has a division to investigate Medicare fraud. It’s that bad. Perhaps there’s too LITTLE administration going on.
And that’s just covering the 65 and older population.
What happens when the rest of America joins?
I think liberals should fix Medicare first before solving their “health care crisis.”
