What's wrong with Medicare
Dennis Kucinich explains: "Medicare, essentially, is built to be efficient. And it has worked for many people... (But) the Bush administration's philosophy has been to move increasingly toward the privatization of Medicare. They don't want Medicare to work ... the (federal government) is trying to drive up the costs, (and) they're limiting reimbursements to physicians to discourage them from participating in the system."
