The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

New poll shows Docs want to extend Medicare to age 55. Also a public option.

Check it out. ...and count me in.

Excerpt: "Similar results were seen when doctors were asked about extending Medicare to those aged 55 and above. Fifty-eight percent supported the idea, 23 percent were opposed and 19 percent were unsure.

In the smaller survey, 73 percent said every doctor ought to care for the uninsured and underinsured and 67 percent said they were willing to accept limits on payments for expensive drugs and procedures as a way to save money and make basic care available to more people."

Seems like it's time for the insurance companies, the hospitals, the drug companies and the politicians in their pockets to pony up.
