of course medicare is forced socialism, that is why it's so f*cked up. but make no mistake, for seniors medicare is not a entitlement.You're right to be angry, but you're getting angry at the wrong people. Democrats have been speaking out since then. This isn't a new issue and it was liberals who brought attention to price gouging in pharma. And I know you don't like me saying it, but Medicare is socialized medicine. It's socialized medicine that we're forced to pay into, but it's still socialized medicine.
But you're right, there isn't money to cover what we have, let alone more. Medicare is already on track to run out of money and moves like Trump's tax cuts speed that up. I keep saying we need to cut our losses, pay out to seniors whatever is left, and stop collecting social security and medicare because I'm likely to see nothing or an extremely small return as a best case scenario. And you're going to hate this lol, but repealing Obamacare has negative effects on Medicare as well http://money.com/money/4662792/obamacare-repeal-medicare-why-you-should-care/
they can't take care of seniors who have paid into medicare their whole lives but they think they can care for the entire population from cradle to grave-I call bullshyt.
