22. What is your logic that they understand what medicare is
"Do you think the government should stay out of medicare". Medicare is a government funded and administered program. I don't see how there is confusion on the issue.

At town hall meetings it is not uncommon for people over 65 to scream the loudest about socialism and government takeovers of healthcare.

Also, I most people can't name all 3 branches of government, name their senators or representatives, or know how many senators are serving in the senate. So the fact that most don't know what medicare is isn't too outlandish.
