Q&A: Do you believe Medicare can continue in its current form and still pay full benefits to future generations?

Question by Mike: Do you believe Medicare can continue in its current form and still pay full benefits to future generations?
If not won’t that end Medicare as we know it? What is the Democratic plan to fix it?
@ Dave
They are going to cut $ 700 billion dollars worth of payments to medical providers, not cut waste. Their cost control will only make doctors accept fewer Medicare patients, or tack on the lost revenue to other patients bills like they do now. Some day Democrats will have to take reforms seriously instead of using it as a way to win elections by scaring people.

Answer by Dave87gn
Obama cut $ 700 billion out of waste from the system, and now the republicans cry about it.
as if they liked medicare all along..

the solution is to control costs ( which would be introducing competition into the insurance industry) or raising taxes..
two things republicans hate..competition, and paying for stuff they buy
