    My elderly mom has both Medicare and supplemental, and the hospital she is at again today gives her the best of care. Me, with the same symptoms and no insurance, would walk in there and owe them around $30,000 immediately after treatment.
    A government run insurance program would definitely knock down doctor pay quite a few notches.

    What makes me so mad is there are in actuality only 20 million Americans without health care the other 27 million are illegal and people who could be on medicare/medicade or make $40,000 a year and could buy insurance but they will punish the other more than 280 million Americans! what crap!

    This tells me it is all about the govenment wanting to control our health care.
