Medicare and medicaid is for low income people and special needs (pregnant women) in our country. In July of 2005, 41 MILLION people were enrolled in Medicare part A or B. Mind you, the 2005 USA population was around 290 million or so. Percentage wise, that equates to 13.79 precent of our ENTIRE country. Do you you think these people dont spend money on medicine, food, clothes and utilities?
