Letter: Medicare is a heaping big mess

To the editor:

We who are on Medicare paid for it with every check we got. Problem is now they take it out of our Social Security. The problem is they never mention what happens to all the Medicare money. Another problem — we are paying twice or more; they pay only 80 percent. So we pay for Rx card, thanks to Ted Kennedy. Pay if you get it; pay if you don't.

When you write and tell your representative or senator, it's always somebody else's problem. They don't check into the problem to see if the problem could be fixed. They have a tendency to completely ignore the problem.

It's a heaping big mess.
