    Medicare won't exist by the time I'm eligible, so I don't really give a **** how good it is now.

    Medicare has a necessary purpose, giving seniors help with their medical costs. I find medicare more important than a non-restricted government-run healthcare because seniors are obviously elderly, often retired, and have less opportunity and ability to earn wages required for private health insurance. Too bad poor spending and this new healthcare plan will probably bankrupt a WORKING government healthcare program...

    It sound like you trust insurance companies more than the you trust government employees.
    I would. Insurance companies are a business, and if they do not offer quality health insurance, you can always choose a different health insurance company.

    Myself, I not sure I want some profit motivated insurance company employee looking at my health care cost as item that may reduce his bonus.

    Wait a moment, I spend a micro-second thinking about this and I know I DON'T want some insurance company clown to make that decision.
    What decision are you referring to? If your talking about health care costs consider this: If a heath insurance company "decides" to"raise your cost", why would you stick with that insurer? You have the freedom to pick a new one, instead of having a real clown in our government making decisions that they have no real qualifications to make. And people wonder why the government spends so inefficiently...

    But you can make your own choices.

    Good luck finding an insurance policy that has no government subsidy when you're over 65. If you really beat the bushes you might find one $15k to $20K/month.
    AHAHAHA, at this rate the "capitalist pigs" will be subsidizing the government by the time we're 65... Social Security and Medicare are going to be things of the past quite soon. This is what happens when we allow our government to spend our money on rashly created and implemented plans, when they really have none of their own...

    Stick to your principles.
    They have served me and my country very well so far, it's your supported administration that wants to change them.

    I work with insurance companies daily. Sad to say I would trust the government before I would trust an insurance company.

    When one appeals a denial of benefits with the insurance company, one would appeal to the insurance company. When one would appeal a denial of benefits with a public option, one would appeal to the agency in charge of the public option...similar to appealing to Medicare, now.

    Maybe if one was gullible or naive and wanted the company to sing them a song.

    Myself, I sue a company in court if they breach their contract with me.

    Obviously you are unaware of procedure. Try it on your first appeal. You'll get laughed at.

    If they were in breach, I would file suit without talking to them again.

    They can try laughing at the judge.
