Okay, I think what should have happened was to increase the Medicare tax that is taken out of each check for employees and the amount employers pay in. That would let the little people pay less than the people who make more, but get the same help. Put the trillions of dollars that they are using for Healthcare Bill now into Medicare let everyone have a Medicare Card, insurance companies can sell subsidies for paying the rest instead of a co-pay, pay nothing if people want them. Have a co-pay of about $30 with a co-pay of Generics and Regular Brand prescription drugs, plus a co-pay for a surgery or a higher co-pay for maybe a specialist. For anyone who would like to pay for their own insurance outside of Medicare they are able to as long as they show they have Insurance with Medicaid which again would issue them a card. Then they can do like a Medicare card for these individuals that has a chip in it which can be put into a computer system stating that they are covered where that is what people show for insurance to doctors.
Plus since the companies pay half of the Medicare already for their employees with the tax being raised everyone wins in this situation and individuals do not see the money it goes directly to Medicare without individuals having to worry about another bill to try and worry about where the money will come from!!!!!
I can’t see why this was not thought of or done 😦
For the individuals who do not like this idea, GUESS WHAT YOU ARE ALREADY PAYING FOR INDIVIDUALS ON MEDICARE OR MEDICAID ANYWAY SO WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE FOR YOU ACTUALLY BEING ABLE TO USE THE MONEY YOU PUT INTO IT?????? Because there will be a lot of us who never see Social Security!! Just sayin….
Today as we sit and mingle amongst no one do we see the hidden tears that the other carries?
Today as we listen and speak to the invisible do we hear the anguish within the whispers of their voice?
Today as we walk the path of the unknowing do we watch our step before the cliff?
Today as we watch with closed eyes do we see what is right in front of us?
Today as we feel the nothing within do we know of the loneliness that never stops?
Today as we see clearly do we not feel the teardrops fall?
Today as we begin again do we feel the end?
Time passes as we fill the need to understand and comprehend of what transpired before. As this happens we fill the heart as best we can with band-aids to mask the pain and destruction. Love is to an individual is as much LOVE – TRUST and HONESTY that can be given heart and soul, but once destroyed must be rebuilt with the knowledge of nothing can be the same, just the forward motion of changing as we go and hoping beyond hope that that pain does not happen again.
As LIFE happens we know there is not much we can do about those unforeseen problems except weather the storm as it takes us where it wants us to go.
Sometimes they are good and sometimes they are bad, but whether they are expected or unexpected we have to take them one at a time and do what is best for everyone involved, but most of all we ourselves must come first.
Ahhh, The Direction of the wind varies among time as if it is flow this way and that, tis beyond my control to deviate its path of which direction it will blow other than that tis to send my way a flowing breeze to whisper across the listening ears as they search in earnest for the answers in which they seek.
