You turn 65 and then you must go into a Medicare plan, and you pay a fortune more for far fewer benefits

What a difference a year makes. You are one of the millions of Americans, who don’t have company health insurance. Damned with a pre-existing condition, you carry so-called Obamacare (www.healthcare.gov). Next year, you turn 65 and must enroll in Medicare. There’s no good news, just bad news for you. Obamacare is a far better plan than Medicare and costs at least $1,800 less a year. Worst of all, there’s no […]

Cut Medicare and Social Security Club is back again – this time pointing its daggers at Donald Trump

The Committee for a Responsible Budget (CFRB) is at it again in their quest to cut Social Security and Medicare. Cloaked behind a lace curtain of “bipartisan” concern, the committee includes impotent deficit hawks, sharks and other carnivores of ill repute. Of course, at the top of the list is Pete Peterson, a very, very old creature and to his fellow seniors, certainly very, very cold and calculating. This Wall […]

The details are in the Heritage Foundation plan to replace Medicare with a “premium support” plan in which you buy Medicare on the open market and the government reimburses you, based on the lowest price from […]

Medicare tax gets you mandatory program for health insurance that costs fortune in co-pays, deductibles

The usual self-centered politicians and their masters at Fix the Debt, Libertarian Caucus, Tea Party and Fox News, along with a pack of pitiful former government officials like Ed Rendell, this week bemoaned the so-called “doc fix”, which brings Medicare payments to providers up to miserable levels, instead of a 21%  cut. That reduction in doctor payments would increase the number of physicians who refuse to treat Medicare patients. The […]

$6,000 healthcare deductible lowers birth rate in the U.S. and keeps many from marrying

Some pundits have recently commented on other blogs that the birth rate seems to be declining among middle class citizens. In my opinion much of this terrible trend is caused by economics – newly minted healthcare insurance plans that no longer just require co-pays, but have a huge first contribution. When a family has to pay the first $6,000 in healthcare costs in a year – having a baby is […]
