It amazes me to see people who are obviously eligible for Medicare rant and rave about the recent health care legislation. Do they refuse to allow Medicare to pay their bills when they get sick? Heck no! But if the rest of us poor schmucks get a few measly concessions like an end to being refused insurance because of pre-existing conditions or a guarantee that we won't be dropped when we get sick, all of a sudden that's "Socialism."
Funny how it's not socialism for them- only when it gets offered to other people.
I don't think the health care legislation is perfect, in fact it's far from it. My choice would have been extending Medicare to all citizens. What we got is a small first step in the right direction, and Medicare recipients demonstrating against it is hypocritical at best.
If they want to repeal the health care bill, then they should first repeal Medicare and have to deal with the insurance companies like the rest of us.
