Meh. Politics aside, I'm tired of subsidizing old people. Most providers don't take medicare patients anymore in my area. They need to pay a fair price.

Mabey they figure if the Republicans are uber in control, they can blame them easier for why everything sucks and realize the reps will do alot of dumb stuff....ALOT.

Mabey we can get a new nuclear deal out of this though....IDK.

Or, maybe old people should have to pay insurance premiums, just like the rest of us.

To be fair, if old sick folk join our pools our premiums will likely increase.

Rugian, The basis for the proposed hike was the expense pf Alzheimer's drugs, that they didn't approve. So whats the basis other than big pharma lobbying.

Medical issues in the US I am way more sympathetic to ppl bitching about paying a "fair price" for considering its a government backed monopoly/oligopoly for a captive consumer.

Nothing about it is in anyway a free fair market, letting big pharma set the prices in such an environment doesn't make it so.

This digs at Biden's base, he is most popular amongst the 65+ crowd...or was.
