Letter to the Port Huron Times Herald: Medicare works
Here is my suggestion: Instead of months of head scratching and position papers, simply extend Medicare to everyone, a 40-year-old program that works.
There is a bill (HR 676 in the last Congress with 90 members of Congress as cosponsors) that will be offered to do exactly that -- Medicare for everyone -- and more. The total cost will be less than what is being paid out now.
