    Misconception About Medicare by Liberals

    The liberals keep saying that they want free medicare for everybody. I have some surprising news for them. Medicare is not free nor does it pay for everything. Everybody that works pays for medicare over the years that they worked. Medicare part A only pays for your hospital bills less a $500 deductible. Part B of Medicare cost $134/person/month. Part D, which you get from a health insurance carrier, helps on prescriptions. Mine and my wife's total cost for Medicare part B and D is $433/month. That's not what I call free.

    FWIW, most teachers and most state employees don't pay in to medicare or Social Security while employed by the state.

    That doesn't resonate with liberals. They think the US government is some all powerful deity that can do anything it wants, any time it wants, for as long as it wants to do it. Simply raise tax rates and make everybody rich! That's the extent of financial expertise that is possessed by about 90% of the liberals out there.

    Never heard of “free Medicare for all”. It has always been “Medicare for all” everytime I have heard the single payer system described.
