You do understand, don't you, that the Medicare Trust is on its way to insolvency?

Yes. That doesn't mean, however, that getting rid of Medicare is the best solution.




Patient: So what's the verdict, Doc?

Physician: You've got a crushed disk at C6.

Patient: So what can be done?

Physician: We can put you in a brace for life or you can undergo surgery to insert an artificial disk.

Patient: I'll take the surgery.

Physician: Well, no, you can't. The least expensive solution is the lifetime brace, so that's all you can get under your private insurance plan.
