<<Capitation was created during the Bush administration - the thinking was the Private Sector could do it cheaper. Now that 10s of millions have moved to the Advantage plans, maybe it is time to take away the subsidy and watch how fast the Advantage plans fail.


Poor people just default or are exempt from paying co-pays and deductibles. Defaults reduce the income to health carem providers, which means that others must pay.

Medicare Advantage plans usually insure that those co payments and deductibles are actually paid.

People are WILLINGLY choosing to pay extra money to support the health care system, and the government has offered a subsidy to encourage that.

In other circumstances, Democrats and liberals would be championing that kind of program. But since it was a Bush and a Republican program, their aim is to destroy it.

Another example of Democratic partisanship.
