Medicare: The Ordinary People Get Hundreds of Yuan, While CCP High-Ranking Officials Get Millions

According to foreign media reports, in response to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s recent medical insurance reforms, which dramatically reduce retirement funds, retired older people in Guangzhou, Wuhan, Dalian, and other places have taken to the streets to protest. Before the so-called reform, every month, these retired older people received medical subsidies ranging from a bit more than one hundred Chinese Yuan, or nearly 15 USD, to several hundred Yuan per month. In contrast, the new medical insurance scheme cut the subsidies by about seventy percent. For example, it is reported that retired employees of a former state-owned enterprise in Anhui Province originally received more than 240 yuan in monthly medical subsidies. But from the second half of last year, it was drastically reduced to 70 yuan or about 10 USD. The CCP officials who have retired for years have spent vast amounts of money on health care in hospitals and have received top-level medical services. At the same time, their families can also enjoy monthly nursing subsidies of over 100,000 yuan, or 14.6 thousand USD. The Central Health Care Commission, headed by Ding Xuexiang, the director of the General Office of the Central Committee and a member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee, is responsible for the health care of no more than 1,000 central and provincial officials. Last year, it received 16.48 billion yuan in federal government funding, which averages 16.8 million yuan, or 2.4 million USD per person! By contrast, retired ordinary people in Communist China have to protest in the street and shout for their monthly medical insurance money of 100 Yuan or 15 USD. As an old Chinese poem described, “While the rich wine and dine, the poor die of cold by the roadside,” this scene has reappeared in Communist China.
