What dismantling It Does
A 2015 report from the Congressional Budget Office showed a $137 billion net increase to the deficit over the next 10 years if it goes away. There could be up to 24 million being uninsured by 2024. Businesses with less than 25 full-time employees won’t get tax breaks of up to 50% for the cost of their employees health insurance. Funding for Medicare was extended another 12 years-- that would go away.
A Better Alternative; National Healthcare For Everyone
The problem with Medicare are the elderly which incur the most expenses at their age. Mostly the groups who signed up for Obamacare are the ones who would spend more then they have to for paying the fines for not doing so because they are young. Expanding Medicare into becoming a national healthcare system seems like it could be a win-win for everyone. I have a few ideas how this could work. At present Congress is poised to return to the good old days before Obamacare even going so far as to expand Medicare into a voucher system on the open market. Ask anyone presently on Medicare and you will see they are much more satisfied with it then they ever were with their previous employer based plans. Why shouldn't we extend this same opportunity to every one?
Medicare isn't broken. It just needs fixing.
