Reed talks to Chamber about Medicare

June 6, 2011

LINCOLN — If Republican plans to change Medicare from an entitlement to a voucher or “premium support” system are successful, “it will be harder and harder for seniors to get health insurance,” Sen. Jack Reed told the Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce Monday.
Reed harkened back to the early 1960s, before the Medicare law was passed, telling the business group that, “when you would go to a friend’s house and you would see at least one grandparent in the front room on a hospital bed, getting health care.” That is what health care was like for senior citizens back then, he said.
