"The Medicare tax has been far too low for far too many years."
Jack up taxes!....kill the economy. Actually, what should be done is that seniors should be paying more.
" I would've been happy to pay more."
The government has gladly accepted volunteer donations each year. But you, WArren Buffet, and Bill Gates....despite their whining about paying more taxes...NEVER PAID A DIME EXTRA in VOLUNTARY contributions to the fed.
So, you would only pay more if a gun was held to your head? Got it?
You could have felt so much 'better' by simply writing a check for 10% more each year and saying 'keep the rest'.
Medicare is bleeding red ink. The only solution is to make folks responsible for part of their health care costs. A lot bigger part.
