In the latest attempt to repair the U.S. health care system, a Democratic congressman has unveiled the Medicare Buy-in and Health Care Stabilization Act, which would let Americans older than 50 buy into Medicare.
Rep. Brian Higgins (D-N.Y.) will formally introduce the bill in the fall; the measure has 14 Democrat co-sponsors so far, the Buffalo News reported. The Health Care Stabilization Act would allow anyone between 50 and 64 years of age to purchase Medicare coverage on Affordable Care Act health exchanges.
"This bill would mean an immediate cost reduction for health care for people aged 50 to 64," Higgins told the Buffalo News. "They would immediately save 40 percent from the premiums they are paying now."
On Monday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere knew that the word “stabilization” could go far toward getting the bill passed.
“It doesn’t matter what’s in it; it’s going to stabilize the health insurance industry so we can make sure we have a stable [industry],” Glenn quipped.
Basically, this kind of measure is about throwing more money at Obamacare until its health care exchanges break down again a couple of years, Stu asserted. How long until the country is on single payer?
“We’re just a few years away from being on this show begging them to go back to Obamacare,” Stu said.
