Gingrich Recommends ‘Transformation’ of Medicare

In this story by Jeff Johnson, former Speaker Newt Gingrich explains — in full-blown Gingrichian style — why Medicare should be transformed (not reformed, he says, transformed) from the current top-down federally controlled system to something based on the Federal Employee Health Benefit plan.

In shorter terms, why we should transform Medicare from something skin to socialized medicine to something based on the competititve plan Members of Congress and federal employees enjoy.
