    Medicare isn't going anywhere.

    Gray panthers are the largest voting block and they DO vote. Not all R's, not all D's, but when it comes to Medicare (and SS) they get pissed when the folks in DC try to take away their EARNED benefits they have PAID for over 30 - 40 years or longer.

    Any changes to either program will impact FUTURE retirees, most likely those under 50 at the time IF there are revisions.

    If there ever was a Berniecare (for the love of God I hope not!) I wonder if there would still be supplements or will we have to all pay 76% taxes and ask what our country can do for us.

    Yeah.. and seniors should be the biggest opponents of Medicare for All. To bring everyone into the system would destroy it..

    Scary stuff going on with congress’s first-ever hearing on Medicare-for-all. A Republican witness, economist Charles Blahous of the conservative Mercatus Center at George Mason University, said his analysis of earlier Medicare-for-all legislation estimated it would add $32 trillion to $39 trillion to federal health care expenditures. But he agreed with Democrats that most, if not all of that aggregate cost would be offset by the elimination of private health plans.
