Medicare Scam

This is just another example of governments perfidy, ignorance, corruption, stupidity, treachery or all of the foregoing. How come we cannot see that anything the government does is actually done by people (government employees) who are, on the whole, less competent than the rest of us? Why do knob heads full of Socialist nonsense want more of the big government offal?

How much per month you say?

The scam is that it was

The scam is that it was presented by our government as a cost to the public never to exceed a flat $1 per month per worker...maximum. Even given inflation, that amount would be only $8 per month today. Do you really expect it would e approved by the public if they knew the cost has no upper limit and based on ever increasing percentage of income and is growing too expensive to maintain. The scam is that the government had no clue what would happen to this program in the future but did realize - or should have - once enacted it would grow uncontrollably and could never be touched...the so-called third rail philosophy

Like most government programs

Like most government programs ,the cost is ever increasing and working folks will always carry the water. There's no free lunch ,but this program has taken care of millions who would have no way to afford private health insurance.To me the real scam is a congress that has allowed insurance companies , banks and pharmaceutical companies to rape the American public for decades..... wonder how so many long term congress blood suckers got rich....
