    I do pay more than some of my friends on traditional medicare, but it is hard to find a doctor who accepts traditional medicare where I live.  They have long time Doctors, but when those Doctors retire they have a problem.

      for about 10 years now and they didn't bat an eye when I went on Medicare. We went through a period about 10 years ago when several of our doctors retired. Now, when I get referred to someone new for anything, I want someone who's going to last as long as I am.

      I am counting the $100 that comes out of my check. What I have that's cheap are my supplemental and drug plan at $27/mo. each. But, I can pass along the advice our primary care physician gave us for my husband: get the best policy you can afford.

      Eliminate tax breaks that stimulate the offshoring of jobs.
