Medicare is going bankrupt and it fails to meet the health care needs of the more than 40 million older and disabled Americans covered by the system. When the baby boomers retire, Medicare rolls are expected to nearly double, further straining an already ailing system. Legislation has not yet offered a cure, though the federal government's rules and regulations on Medicare currently weigh in at 111,000 pages.
The FreedomWorks Position
Real Medicare reform should give seniors more choices - not more government. After paying into the system for over three decades, they should be able to use Medicare's limited funds to select the type of coverage that is right for their individual circumstances. They should have the right to choose their own doctors. They should have the right to make choices affecting their own health and medical treatments. And as Americans, they should have the right to opt out of Medicare altogether.
