They All Clapped

Okay, maybe not everybody, but most members of Congress, Democrats and Republicans, applauded last night when President Obama pledged to safeguard Medicare, calling it a “sacred trust” with older Americans.  

What the President didn’t say, and what too many people forget, or try to, is that Medicare IS a public health insurance program.  It was created and is broadly  implemented by the federal government; claims are administered by private insurance companies. For everyone who applauds Medicare – and most people do – support a public option so we can pass the sacred trust of health care security on to younger generations!
