Medicare is free? Who told you that? My mother paid into it from every paycheck she ever got and now pays over $3,000 per year in premiums for her Medicare supplemental insurance. That’s over $3k that comes out of her $16k per year SS. To support two people’s entire yearly living expenses.
Let me add that she hasn’t used her Medicare much at all. One broken wrist and a couple of emergency room visits.
Then you should have said “Medicare.”
You were attempting to conflate the Social Security program with `Obamacare,’ something everyone here opposes.
You were taking a swing at something easy.
