You do realize that even three times the "normal" Medicare premium of $99.90/month (about $3600/year) is only one-third of the $11,000 per beneficiary the Gov't spends on Medicare.

You're still getting a tremendous bargain.


Oh, before I leave...speaking of "bad math", this sentence totally ignores the $65,000 in Medicare payments made during my working career ( and all the money those contributions could have made during the last 40 years ) ;-)

Cheers!
