      Let's call it Big MA vs. little ma.

      And I'm sure that your Big MA can beat up the GOP's little ma anyday. ;-)

      ...Medicare Advantage.

      Another shining example of GOP oxymoron.  The only "advantage" goes to the big insurers.

      •  It used to be Medicare Choice (1+ / 0-)

        when it was first created under Clinton. It was renamed Advantage after Medicare D (Rx). And it gives seniors the choice to be at a (dis)advantage.

        The plans actually aren't that bad. Some seniors need more than A and B offer them. They're just not the best values for either seniors or taxpayers. From what I understand they're basically expensive taxpayer-funded Medicare supplemental plans, in terms of coverage offered, but with a totally different cost structure that benefits neither member nor taxpayers.
