Without Medicare, my wife and I would be financially ruined, and I wouldn't be alive to attest to that.
Tricare, the insurance that is earned by our service members by serving enough years to earn a retirement, those who are medically retired, and disabled veterans, as examples, is threatened by this action also. Is this really the message we want to send our younger generation who would be our future officers and enlisted members? It seems like we just keep creating more and more ways to make the military look unattractive.
This very morning my Physician told me that if the medicare cuts go through she is closing her doors. I feel devastated. I am 74 Years old she has been my primary care doctor for 25 years and an excellent doctor. I am so upset that this might happen to her and so many other caregivers in this country and as patients who is going to take us on with all of these medicare cuts. Please can someone tell me. mna
