    Why do you care since Medicare is such a great program in your world? Fact is I am no longer on Medicare but rather another program where I was able to keep my doctor.

    Because you can not "opt" out of medicare Insurance companies don't offer comprehensive insurance to retired people 65 and older.

    Your opinion noted, I have a program other than Medicare and my secondary is my private insurance company. Yes, I was forced onto Medicare, my doctor of 20 plus years doesn't accept Medicare but I still have him as my doctor through a program his company offers. I have no problem with service, quality, and professionalism. No more Medicare minimums and regulations, love it. Cannot wait until others here promoting the single payer actually get to benefit those "great" Medicare benefits.

    No problem then, enjoy your Medicare and all the benefits it offers. I am still with my doctor, better tell him he isn't getting paid since he dropped Medicare.

    Jeez. Are you guys complaining about Medicare? The best deal of medical insurance? Must be another planet.

    HMO, PPO, PFFS and Supplements. From FREE to $180 a month. I took a PPO for $69 a month this year (up by $69 from last year) and most MDs take it.

    You still have not opted out of medicare and are still covered by it. At the very least hospitalization is covered. IOW you did not, can not opt out as you claimed.

    Yes, I did opt out of traditional Medicare and have been able to keep my doctor who doesn't accept traditional Medicare. Not sure what your problem is, you seem happy with it, enjoy it and all the benefits. Let me suffer under my own plan with my own doctor of 20 years. Much cheaper, much better, much lower deductibles. It is amazing what you can do when you do research. Change is never easy especially for people who believe SS and Medicare are such great programs.

You have nothing to compare your opinion to therefore you rely simply on theory and ignore reality. Still waiting for why you cannot sell your own state on the program rather than require a Federal Program. Why is it my responsibility to pay for your healthcare? I am paying for others in TX so why your state?
    Disaster? Check how the elderly before medicare and how they are now. You must not know what disaster really means.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
