A Medicare Reform Left and Right can agree on?

As we gear up for tonight’s big debate, I thought this was a very interesting article about how Medicare should be more like Social Security. Sure, Social Security’s finances are problematic and the system must be reformed, but they are not as bad as Medicare’s long-term.

One solution, as Michael Cannon of the Cato Institute points out, is to give Medicare recipients a sum of money to spend or save for their own health care. Again, it doesn’t solve the entire problem, but it starts us in the right direction.
