In regards to the medicare premiums; I would like to point out seniors are getting a very good deal as they are paying only 25 to 35% of the cost of the program. The balance is subsidized by the taxpayer.

From the article. As a rule, taxpayers pay for 75 percent of Medicare’s outpatient and prescription benefits.
