    As a (now retired) RN, who worked mainly with medicare/medicaid patients in nursing homes, group homes, and home care, I have witnessed first hand the incredible exploitation of the systems by for profit providers and even country agencies. All of this could easily be stopped by efficient reviews by (medically trained)  professional reviewers. There is a large army of retired RN's, who could be tapped for this.

    Add some reasonable price controls (profit regulation) on medical suppliers and drug companies, and I highly doubt  we'd have any problem at all with affording either Medicare  or Medicaid.
