"The only advantage to

"The only advantage to Medicare is the government can say F U to the doctors by telling them how much they will get paid for their services. "

And they also say F U to us by telling us we cannot avoid paying them for their "service". It's worse than a Ponzii scheme - at least with a Ponzii you are free to opt out. Washington doesn't let its serfs opt out of much these days - especially its retirement ponzii, its health insurance ponzii and its pharmaceutical ponzii.
