Medicare “Advantage” Medicare

In addition to the views in the previous blog, the president has expressed wanting to reform Medicare Advantage plans. I find this an agreeable intention, but he must couple this control of funds with a genuine preservation of Medicare for all. As a public servant, you can’t ask people to give up Medicare Advantage and not provide them with a government plan for each and every uninsured American. People who have private insurance aren’t generally going to give that up for a government plan, so there’s no argument that gives merit to denying rudimentary insurance, tax payer funded, to a poor individual and/or child. There simply isn’t any good argument that discredits such action.
