  •  medicaid is expanded (6+ / 0-)

    to include everyone who does not earn enough to sign up on the exchanges.  Medicare insures the over 65's. There is the VA insurance.  

    What makes sense is to let anyone sign up for medicaid and pay for it, and let the private insurers compete with that.  

    it's coming.  

    The Republicans like the idea of more business for insurance companies and everyone paying for their insurance.  but they rightly realized that reform would remove the gigantic profits and lead to a public option, which would leave the insurance companies to reduce profits even more or get out of the business.  

    We could then keep our doctors, but not our insurance companies. Sad?

    •  Yup (3+ / 0-)

      There's a lot of good stuff about the ACA the GOP would get rid of for sure.

      I'm just wondering why they want to get rid of a popular program like Medicare and replace it with the type of program that they insist will never work.

      History is a guide, not a destination.

      Think of all those jobs lost if every doctor's office had to understand just one set of rules instead of a dozen.

      And all those grounds keepers that the CEO's home.

      The highest form of spiritual practice is self observation with compassion.
