To the editor: A national Medicare program appears to be the least complex, most cost effective, easiest to implement and will not create an undue burden on the overall population and the business community.
This solution has been discussed but does not appear to be on the congressional priority list, perhaps, because it is overly simplistic.
We know it works. Old people like me (80) love it, so it can’t be too expensive. The elderly are careful with their money. They are also vocal about their concerns and politicians know they all vote.
