Congress Diddling With Medicare Again:
Congress is looking at ways to re-engineer Medicare. As in, How much more money can we take away from these old bitches on a fixed income?
Senior citizens already average 33% of their social security checks on health care with the present Medicare plan, and the Congressional committee working on the Medicare issues, know this.
This committee is considering adopting chances that not only would raise deductibles, but would severely limit many benefits provided by supplemental Medigap plans that some seniors use to hold health costs down.
The two most onerous proposed changes are: higher annual deductibles and replacing Medicare with private health plans.
The proposed private health plan would issue existing Medicare enrollees with a voucher system they can use when they shop for private insurance to replace their Medicare insurance plan.
Yeah, we sure as hell want some of that… Not!

Medical Marijuana For Senior Citizens:
A young Bob Dylan once sang “That Evvvverybody Wants To Get Stoned“.
Maybe he wasn’t talking about us kids on the far side of 55 back then, but that may soon change.
As researchers discover more benefits from using marijuana as part of a treatment process, more medical pros are climbing onto the (it’s gettin’ pretty crowed up there, sonny boy) medical marijuana bandwagon.
The thinking is, medical marijuana’s can treat many aging related symptoms without the harmful side effects often associated with prescription drugs now being used.
It’s early days, but the movement is heating up.
BTW: Medical marijuana shouldn’t actually make it’s users ‘stoned’, but ease suffering.
