I am currently paying $220+ monthly for a single Medicare payment. And I notice that Medicare is paying a lot less and I am paying a lot more in co-pay.

This reminds me of an old joke my father used to tell:

Mrs Goldberg and Mrs Shapiro went out to lunch together every week for years. One day they tried a new restaurant, and Mrs Goldberg says, "Oy, the food at this place is just terrible." And Mrs Shapiro replies, "Yes--and such small portions!"

Somehow I doubt that if Medicare was dismantled, and we were all forced to rely on the tender mercies of private insurance corporations that the private corporations would be paying more for our medical care and we'd be paying less ;-)
