Medicare Tax

The Medicare program was instituted by Congress as a health insurance program for the elderly and disabled.  It is paid for by employers and employees through the Medicare tax on an employee's income.

The Medicare tax along with Social Security under FICA, the Federal Insurance Contributions Act, is based upon income and is withheld from the employee's income and paid by the employer directly to the government.

The Medicare program is growing out of control because of the large number of baby-boomers reaching retirement age, the increasing cost of healthcare and the fact that people are living longer.  The program alone is a huge portion of the federal budget and Congress is unwilling to take the hard steps necessary to put this program on a sound financial footing.  Medicare taxes alone don't even come close to funding Medicare which has a shortfall in the trillions of dollars.
