Medicare is running out of money fast; the Federal government has made promises to that it cannot keep. The Medicare Trustees report that the program’s unfunded liabilities are $38.6 Trillion
, or $328,404 for Each U.S. household. Seniors who depend on Medicare for their medical care need to be allowed a way out of this failing program, explains AAPS Executive Director Jane Orient, MD in this interview with Michael Ostrolenk about her recent Washington Times editorial, “Boomers to Congress: Let’s Make a Deal”
