Medicare/Medicaid is for the disabled, and the elderly, and other services the government provides to us.
I am confused at your answer Medicare is government ran health care, and people sign up for, so why would they not want government ran health care.
Some people haven't a clue as to where money for govt. jobs come from.
You do know people that are under 65 get it too? I bolded the part you missed.
From the site
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) administers Medicare, the nation's largest health insurance program, which covers nearly 40 million Americans. Medicare is a Health Insurance Program for people age 65 or older, some disabled people under age 65, and people of all ages with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure treated with dialysis or a transplant).
