Medicare Is Now Unaffordable

“If anyone here tries to cut … Medicare … I will stop you.” That was President Biden’s promise to a joint session of Congress during last week’s State of the Union address.

Any list of the world’s most inhumane healthcare bureaucracies has to include Britain’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence at the top.
