This is the libertard Taxi service at $1,800 one way. Sadly, these welfare cheaters will ruin the emergency necessity for those who are supporting the operation.

Most Medicare people worked and paid into Medicare. 20, 25, 30, 35 and even 40 years. They then retire and are put on it automatically, as the money that was collected is not going to be returned to the payee to get their own insurance. They have to then get a supplement along with it because not all is covered. It is not as easy as some would believe. They actually still pay every month for both A&B plus the supplement besides the money they paid in all those years. There was an article about ambulances recently that reported the patient should know which ambulance is affiliated with their Doctor and Hospital, because if they go in the wrong one they eat the whole charge. Sad, when it shouldn't matter what ambulance is taking any person to any Hospital to save their life. I know, kill off the Baby Boomers and more money for everyone else. Especially the people who never worked a day in their life. They want your hard earned money to go to them. Share your wealth even if it is not.
