Chicago Tribune: Editorial: Dennis Byrne: A Headache we Should Pay to Cure

A headache we should pay to cure

There are a couple of great solutions that would save Medicare and help the Federal Government with its debt and deficit. One is a fifty State solution, instead of the Federal Government running Medicare for the whole country, allow each State to have its own Medicare System, that they would collect the money for. The other would be to turn it into a Public Option, allow non seniors to pay into it, which would help bring down the costs. Because younger healthier patients would be involved.
