The “one thing that could kill Medicare” in the Democrats’ view….

Is not the crushing unfunded liabilities, the exodus of physicians, or the archaic benefits package. No, the biggest danger is competition from private plans, according to Kent Conrad (D-ND), quoted in an October 24 Associated Press story by Mark Sherman.
