Regardless of the issue, regardless of the point of view, one can always rationalize one's own opinions/desires as being "in the public interest".
It's even easier when what I believe to be Good For Society At Large also puts money in my own pocket. That's one of the most powerful feedback loops known to exist.

Like I say just a couple of paragraphs in, Medicare is a mistake. Nevertheless, it exists and we have to deal with it. Right now, they're trying to balance their books with a bit of price manipulation which is putting medical providers out of business--I'm not talking about some vague future, it's already happening.
If someone can figure out a way to get rid of Medicare entirely, fine. Sign me up. But trying to sustain it by bankrupting the medical providers--which is what this is about--is just plain stupid.
