So You Want Government Health Coverage?


Besides the blatant lying about the "number of un-insured" (the number is actually about 10 million nationally who 1) are US citizens and are 2) actually unable to afford health insurance)...

And the utterly irrational "plan" of the Wisconsin Democratic proposal...

There's this "database" problem.

Ives is one of about 138,000 seniors nationwide who are stuck in bureaucratic gridlock as Medicare Part D premiums are erroneously deducted from their Social Security checks. An additional 141,000 owe money, and can't get the money to be deducted from their checks.

The problem stems from a longstanding computer glitch between the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Social Security Administration

No--this specific "glitch" is not the one which will occur when the State of Wisconsin (or the Feds) implement a Hillarycare System.

But I'll be willing to take large-denomination wagers that there will be at least ONE "database glitch" which will be excruciating for lots of people.
