For all the people concerned about the deficit, and who also want the government to "keep their hands off Medicare," I have a modest proposal.
There is a saying, "Too Stupid to Live." I suggest we put this into practice. Each person eligible for Medicare is required to answer a single question, "Who is the primary administrator of Medicare? (a) The Government (b) The Insurance Industry"
Those who answer (a) remain eligible for Medicare. Those who answer (b) lose Medicare access.
Think of all the money we'll save...
