Medicare is a benefit provided to retired individuals who paid into the system through payroll deductions since 1966. I think what Karen is talking about is the expansion of the welfare state to cover health care for all citizens of these United States.

Unfortunately Karen, you are in the process of getting your wish. It is called ObamaCare. There have been some bumps in the road, not the least of which being projected cost going from $900 billion to $2.7 trillion. But don't worry, our tireless politicians in Washington will forge ahead and get this done for us. And very soon, we shall all be welfare recipients and Karen will have to find something else to be unhappy about.
