Health care changes hurt the elderly

I agree with Donald Berger's letter of Nov. 22 about the fraud going on in Medicare/ Medicaid programs.

The solution, cut Social Security and cost of living calculations. I wonder if the retirees, and I'm one of them, realize the extent of the cut? About a half-trillion dollars will come out of Medicare. That's out of the pockets of the elderly sick people and giving it to young healthy people.

Does that make sense?

The insurance company isn't going to make up the difference. We will have a lot bigger co-pay. He will move millions of you over to Medicaid. Some doctors and hospitals lose money on Medicaid and they will make it up by overcharging you.

I guess most of the people wanted hope, and change and the retired people will be lucky if we have any change. I hope we are wiser in the next election.
