  •  That is plud ignorant. Medicare (0+ / 0-)

    People pay premiums at 25% of cost for part B and the federal government pays the 75% out of general tax funds.

    The premiums are individual; a family of 4 would pay 4 times as much.

    Then there is part A, the part that covers hospital care. If you haven't got 10 years of work credit you have to pay something over $600 a month. Kids haven't worked so the premiums of both would be sky high.

    Then of course prescriptions are separate — that is part D.

    Oh and the copay is 20% and there is no stop loss. There are limits on days in the hospital and some other things.

    I'm asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about real change in Washington ... *I'm asking you to believe in yours.* Barack Obama
