Replace Medicare with “Premium Support” which congress gets? Good enough for congress why not you and me?
Medicare must change. Republican Paul Ryan’s 2012 budget offers reform of Medicare rooted in consumer choice and private competition rather than political control and bureaucratic rationing. By capping the Medicare subsidy seniors would pay for the marginal costs of their care, promoting competitive insurance. That will change how doctors and hospitals provide care, encouraging competition in price and quality. 0
Give seniors a flat amount and choice of various plans. Called “premium support” this is what our postal workers and congress get. If good enough for congress then it’s good enough for me. What about the people already in Medicare that want “premium care” instead.
