12. Armey's goal is make Medicare NON-universal for elderly & open floodgates on MD NON-participation in


...Medicare.

If he achieves that, then Medicare will cease being universal for the elderly & will evolve into a mostly indigent program.

Then the Republicans can achieve what they have been falsely accusing Democrats of planning: cut funding to Medicare, thus rationing care for the indigent, while affluent elderly contract privately with non-participating physicians.
