<<You have to borrow money from the Chinese and pay them interest.

Yes, but the shortfall is far, far smaller than that silly paragraph suggested. >>



Actually, Medicare is in FAR WOSE shape than suggested, due to continued exploding health care costs and the impending coverage of the baby boomer population bulge.

And Medicare has already being imposing unrealistically low reimbusement rates on health care providers for decades, boosting costs for other users.

The finances of Medicare are a shambles and a disgrace.
