Changes to Medicare funding might be a good thing To the editor: There is something that has always troubled me regarding funding the states get from the federal government — be it funding for education, roads, airport expansion or Medicare. Didn’t they get this money from us to begin with? I read with interest Sen. Cardin’s letter regarding the defeat of Rep. Ryan’s proposed overhaul of Medicare. I can’t say I know enough about Ryan’s proposal to say yea or nay, but I suspect it is not as bad as the Democrats claim or as good as the Republicans claim.
