    Thanks for addressing ignorance and misinformation about Medicare. Sorry you had to perpetuate ignorance and misinformation about Obamacare to do it.

    One health care system for everyone. No insurance companies, or employers, need be involved.

    I agree with ljeppsen...and there was a time that Medicare was similar to Obamacare. People thought it wasn't a good idea to have this "government run" Medicare! It has come a long way, but still has it's problems. Obamacare is giving citizens coverage that otherwise couldn't have it. Seniors are not the only ones to get sick....

    Virtually all advanced countries have comprehensive health care systems, e.g. Canada, Britain, Norway, France, Germany etc. They have such because the only way to run health care economically is to have a unified system for all, where all share in health risks. This Obamacare tries to do. Obamacare could be a lot bettter, but it is the best we could do in a lobbyist run system. Without Obamacare forcing shared risk, medicare for seniors will become unsustainable. Oh, and BTW, the tea party, i.e. Paul Ryan, have made no secret of their desire to end medicare.
