This is scary stuff. Medicare is critical if you want to retire. Without it most boomers and seniors would have crippling medical costs in retirement. Privatizing Medicare is NOT a solution. It would save the government money but throw the risk, and increasing costs, back on the recipients. And it's not broke! Don't break it!

"Obamacare rewrote Medicare … so if you’re going to repeal and replace Obamacare, you have to address those issues as well. … What people don’t realize is that Medicare is going broke, that Medicare is going to have price controls. … So you have to deal with those issues if you’re going to repeal and replace Obamacare. Medicare has got some serious problems because of Obamacare. Those things are part of our plan to replace Obamacare.”
