20. Our children have no clue what Medicare and Medicaid are.
They don't know the difference between the two, they don't know you are part of Medicare automatically when you turn 65, rich or poor, they don't understand that Medicaid has helped many needy people.

I think my post below with quotes from faryn balancd will answer your questions.

My line in the sand is the dismantling of Medicare, Medicaid, and or Social Security.

The GOP has done a magnificent job of branding them. Our party has done a lousy job of presenting them for the valuable programs they are.
