A Better Plan

As the greatest nation on earth, our citizens should be entitled to the very best healthcare available, regardless of their current health condition or economic status.

Since I first ran for office in 2005, I have promoted a plan to modify Medicare and require everyone under the age of retirement to “buy” into the program through their payroll deduction tax. Monthly fees would be based on age, with the younger paying the lesser amount and those over 65 receiving it free.

Since I’m currently on Medicare I have personal knowledge of the program and I believe it’s simple and most of all it will work well for all Americans. Not only you be covered for pre-existing conditions but you could also purchase a supplemental plan for even better coverage, if they so desire.

Social Security

Although the system is vastly under-funded I am not overly concerned since it’s no longer in a trust account but a part of our general budget. So, if you believe in this country as I do, you need not worry. However there is a simple remedy to help the program.

The maximum social security withheld today is $8,700 based on a yearly salary of $127,200. Anyone who earns more is not taxed further but removing the lid will increase revenue and help correct the deficit. Our system has always been, the more you earn, the more you pay.
