A very quiet political day for Medicare. Take a break and think about how lucky we are to have Medicare.
Reduce the Cost of Health Care
"There is a consensus building in Washington, D.C. -- which has been joined by many leading Democrats (including the President) -- that Medicare outlays must be cut if our national deficit is to be reined in. At the same time, we hear relatively little about cutting the costs of health care. One may ask, 'What is the difference? You cut one; you curb the other.' Not so fast." Amitai Etzioni makes the case that reducing health care costs in general also will reduce the costs of Medicare.
