The last headline about on robbing Medicare is somewhat misleading, in my view.
If we spend an extra $63 billion a year on ACA subsidies, and if these new subsidies are debt financed, how does this rob Medicare? Even during the installation of the ACA back in 2010 or so, the Medicare fee schedule was barely touched, and the Medicare fees paid to Part C carriers were also barely touched. (although they had been threatened with reductions.)
There is an argument that debt financing is wrong, and I respect that. But debt financing has no impact on Medicare at this time.
