What portion of your earned income do you pay for Medicare? They removed the cap (used to be the same cap as SS has). Now, it's on every dollar that one earns (notice "earned", as in "earned income").
For me, over the years, that's been tens upon tens of thousands.
So, how is that welfare.
Moreover, very few (if any) illegal aliens receive Medicare. Care is Title Act 18. Most Juans, Jorges, Juanitas, etc., receive Medicaid. Caid is Title Act 19.
Nothin's paid into it. No cost sharing (everything is gratas).
Cut back on Caid ... big time.
Then, do something about Medicare. I've paid bunches of cash into that sucker.
