Medicare and Medicaid: How Can We Afford Them?

Medicare and Medicaid: How Can We Afford Them? by Maura Casey

Medicare and Medicaid: How Can We Afford Them?

Finding the resources to cover these public programs is an ever-increasing challenge at a time when our national debt is at an all-time high. Ultimately, all Americans-policymakers as well as citizens-will have to face painful decisions about reducing the cost. This may mean fewer choices in health care for the tens of millions of people enrolled in these programs. The choices are difficult; the stakes, enormous.
