Default Gov't Health care

Turn 65 today; got the umpteen mailings about supplemental healthcare for medicare; tried to talk to people on the Medicare "help" line plus the website. If you want a real life reason why you do not want a gov't type (no doubt with a union) running your healthcare....try to get somewhere with medicare. My best infor came from the private sector reps from insurance companies yes the guys who work for darth vader and the evil rich insurance monsters. Wait til you get there and tell me who you want to work with. Yes they need regs, guideline changes and to make some consumer oriented changes but what a difference from the gov't people

And when people ask what I am going to do about health care when I retire to South America, I tell them that there is good healthcare there and only getting better as Obamacare rolls in and US doctors look to escape....then I ask them if they are relying on Medicare when they retire...

an 11lb pic? very nice !

Frank, I just watched part of a "River Monsters" episode last night where Wade was down in Souse America going for Arapiema. These fish look like the best fighting fresh water fish in the world and get a little bit big:



guess this is yet another mudhole thread getting sidetracked to fishing
