A Supplemental Plan For My Supplemental Medicare Plan

Speaking from experience, Medicare is already a plan with serious limitations. That is why many seniors and alter-abled folks purchase an additional insurance plan to cover the gaps called a supplemental Medicare Plan. Under a McCain/Palin Administration Medicare and Medicaid will be cut even further making the insurance CEO's extremely wealthy while seniors and us alter-abled pay out of pocket for a supplemental plan, which may or may not include dental coverage.

McCain Plans Federal Health Cuts
Medicare, Medicaid Spending Would Be Reduced to Offset Proposed Tax Credit

John McCain would pay for his health plan with major reductions to Medicare and Medicaid, a top aide said, in a move that independent analysts estimate could result in cuts of $1.3 trillion over 10 years to the government programs.

The Republican presidential nominee has said little about the proposed cuts, but they are needed to keep his health-care plan "budget neutral," as he has promised. The McCain campaign hasn't given a specific figure for the cuts, but didn't dispute the analysts' estimate. Wall Street Journal Link
