Response to n2doc (Original post)

13. Whoever wrote that article for the AP needs to work a little harder.

The first sentence mentions "Dick Armey and other Social Security recipients who say they have the right to reject Medicare in favor of continuing health coverage from private insurers."

Everybody already has the right to reject Medicare in favor of continuing health coverage from private insurers. All you have to do is not sign up for Medicare and not pay the monthly premium.

I suppose they meant that they wanted to stop paying the tax to support Medicare, but you wouldn't know that from the article.
