Republicans couldn’t defund Obamacare, and Democrats seemingly can’t defend it. Some states (where there’s competition) are seeing lower insurance rates, and some (where Republicans blocked competition) are having sticker shock.
Nobody understands what Obamacare is, but everybody understands a website that won’t work, so we’re obsessing about that.
Maybe we’re overcomplicating this. Maybe there’s a simpler way to fix the whole system.
One thing seems to work: Medicare. It works so well that everybody on it is ready to throttle anybody who tinkers with it.
So why don’t we just put everybody – everybody, regardless of age – on Medicare?
Why go through the agony and confusion of “reform”? Why try to fix a broken system? Why not just throw out what everybody seems to hate and replace it with what everybody seems to like?
I don’t mind if you disagree. Soon, I’ll be on Medicare. And it looks good. I just thought I’d give you the same opportunity.
