Increase more efficient method

By Staff | May 18, 2011

To the editor,

Hopefully, Senators Connie Mack and Marco Rubio will come to visit us during their recess. Unfortunately, people on Medicare have no such luxuries. They have to man the ramparts on this health care issue.

Private health insurances, with record profits, now seek to raise premiums, increase co-pay, increase deductibles and reduce coverage. Institutions that our elderly would have to cope with

Republicans offer a limited voucher for them to go shopping? Another solution through capping? Bottom line, elderly will have a desegregating sales coupon to negotiate their health?

Efficiency of Medicare, of getting more for the buck to the patients, has been exposed. Private insurance company inefficiencies is constantly being demonstrated. Simple logic would dictate that we should increase the more efficient method.

Expanding Medicare to all, from cradle to grave. Single payer system is indicated through our prototype (Medicare and Medicaid) of cost savings to our medical institutions .

Ryan?’s proposal and the present state of this issue is not acceptable. Sweeping it under the table at this stage is not an option.
