The problem is that whenever a Democrat says anything about cutting Medicare costs, the GOP jumps out and shouts "death panels" etc.



If setting up death panels is the only method Democrats can think of to cut medicare costs, GOP should jump up and shout. There are many other ways to reform Medicare than setting up panels that decide if an individual will receive treatment based on their remaining quality years (more accurately desribed as life or death panels in my view, winner chosen by the government). Tort reform, capping malpractice awards, getting goverment out of the insurance business altogether.......

Government interference in healthcare and health insurance is the primary driver of the outragous costs in my view.
