The list, ping
Great. The signature government-run medical scheme is going bankrupt. Obviously the solution is to have more government-run medical schemes.

Meanwhile, when it is our turn to get Medicare, they will just say, you're too old. Why don't you just die. That will go nicely with our payments into Social Security being accessible only after we are 75. The fraud finally comes clear. Just like Bernie Madhoff's people, the ones holding the bag are breathless even though they knew it was too good to be true.
Medicare threatens existing health system.
Isn’t it actually the other way around?
Doesn’t Medicaid underpay doctors and hospitals, so they have to charge individuals and especially insurance companies more to cover the underpayment?
You know someone's lying to you whenever they use this gem of a phrase. There is no trust fund, just a giant ponzi scheme.
Not sure. They are going to set wage and price controls on salaries in the Obama plan. They will ration care for sure. Even though Medicare underpays, seniors get some kind of care. Obama will send them to a hospice and wish them luck.

Folks, we have a WINNER!!

he will ship them off to Gitmo
Anyone who believes in killing innocent unborn babies,
is against killing convicted murderers, and
is trying to just dope up seniors instead of providing them healthcare is
wherever he was born!!!
Right there you know he's lying. I guarantee you that there is NO money in the fund now. IF there was, the crooks in Congress would have raided it!
