Default Re: Re: People who are rude to the staff.

glalonzo - To quote you:

"If they are on medicare or medicad they probably paid taxes MUCH longer then you have".

By this statement you are lumping Medicaid into the "MUCH longer" taxpayers bracket. If you truly understand how Medicaid works than you must admit your statement is just a little misleading. Most Medicare recipients are senior citizens, and they probably have paid taxes for many years, but this is absolutely NOT the case with the majority of Medicaid patients; a fact, not an assumption.

I am not a snob, simply defending my mother, a dedicated RN who never 'deserved' a lack of respect from anyone, no matter how their bill was being paid.
