I can't tell you how much I was thankful that medicare was there for my grandson. He was extremely under weight born 5 months early. Without the hospital and this financing . Why is it that all other nations have coverage for all of their citizens? Are we the primary leaders of the world or is it about politics as usual? As a human being and citizen of the United States I just don't understand. All people should be granted equal rights to accesses of medical benefits...I am not talking about botox, or some self satisfying surgery, just the basics to live a productive healthy life. I plead with you to leave this benefit alone for the sake of our youth and their future.
