Obamacare: Good or Bad for Medicare?

Obamacare effects on Medicare

I am not a Senior Citizen on Medicare; however I am a 55 plus person on a disability with a Medicare Advantage plan. I have read opponents to Obamacare say that Obama’s medical reform will raise the insurance cost or the out of pocket for Medicare recipients. Less frequently I have read a different perspective from pro-Obamacare pundits. Pro-Obamacare pundits are way less in number than anti-Obamacare pundits.

A friend of mine sent a slideshow to me that is anti-Obamacare and is actually part of a chain email. You clink the link in the chain email to view the slideshow. As of today 6/26/12 there is only one comment at the slide show and it is from a pro-Obamacare pundit.

So this is what I going to do: I am going to copy and paste the chain email which includes the link. On the blogs I post on that allow the-embed of a non-YouTube format I will do so. Otherwise you will have to follow the link to the slideshow. If you are knowledgeable on how Obamacare affects Medicare please comment on the blog and the link to the slideshow.

This 2 1/2 minute info-video may open some eyes. Let's hope so.
Forward this to every senior you know and ask them to pass this along. Very important they all know what is going to happen.....

Remember what FDR said, "There are no coincidences in politics..."

This is a perfect example of a misleading article obviously from someone associated with an Advantage insurer. The subsidy was put in place to get support from the insurance companies. It will always be cheaper for Medicare with a single payer (Gov).
