Trivia Tidbit of the Day: Part 762 -- Medicare's Runaway Growth.

Government Already Runs Too Much Of Our Health Care System-

So, yeah... this Obamacare thing. Not good.

Medicare, even before Obamacare gets added to America's public burden, is already in serious trouble:

MedicareBreakdown.gif
Throughout the time period examined, the portion of Medicare that is funded by our tax dollars is slated to remain roughly constant at 40%. As a percentage of GDP, these general revenue transfers are projected to increase from 1.3% in 2010 to 3.6% in 2050. In addition, growing deficits in the Hospital Insurance Trust Fund will need to be proactively addressed by new legislation to avoid a future interruption of service. Medicare funding must be cut; these cuts must be deliberate, not due to a legislative loophole.

We have too much government in our health care system already, not too little. Medicare's fiscal mismanagement and ever-expanding debt bubble offers a glimpse into Obamacare's future.

Our country will look very different in a generation, and it won't look pretty.
