Starting 10 years from now, in 2021, Americans would no longer enroll in the Medicare program, but instead receive vouchers for private insurance, according to the GOP sources, who stressed anyone 55 or older now would not be affected by the change.

Our HC system is based on profit. I doubt any reform that includes less profit and more comprehensive and affordable care for ANYONE, especially those most in need, will EVER come to fruition. HC is big business in the US. It's about making money, the HC part is inconsequential-

I think something needs to happen or no one will be getting any help from any source. England has just implemented regulations that you must prove you worked at some job or no public assistance at all. How novel! If you can go work doing something to get paid by the state, you can work to earn a free and clear check without the state. Read the Federalist Paper #12. It discusses taxes, taxation, and why taxing people will never generate enough money to pay the bills of a country. Hamilton understood this then from the difficulties in Europe and the faltering of economies. Nothing has changed. Our nation has Prader Willi and will never be satisfied except only about 1% of the population is expected to support 100% of the population. It is doomed to fail. Is that what is wanted?
