I just looked at our AARP Bulletin. There was an article that explained dislike of national care by saying something along the lines of "people have been to the Post Office- they don't want government run health care!"
That's a horrible comparison. The right comparison would be Medicare, which is a government run system that works very well - as many seniors and disabled people can attest.
I usually like AARP. That article, not so much.
I agree. Medicare works great. Escalating health care costs are the problem, not Medicare. The Ryan proposal does nothing about curbing health care costs. It just shifts the cost increases onto the people who depend on Medicare. Obamacare will help reduce the rate of increase in health care costs but not enough to solve the problem. More reform is needed. The parasitic private health insurance industry is a big part of the problem, but it's pretty well entrenched. For profit medicine which results in excessive tests and ineffective procedures is another big source of cost escalation.
