  •  Under Ryan plan Medicare age goes to 69 and 1/2 (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    before you are eligible--yes, 69 and a half, you read that correctly--of course it was phased in but that was part of Ryan's so-called 'Path to Prosperity' and this is when we should be lowering the age of Medicare eligibility (and Social Security) not raising it.

    Why folks are not up in arms about the miserable safety net that we have created for ourselves is a constant source of puzzlement. I guess Lincoln was right about how easy it is to fool people, I hope we wise up in time.

    Johnny's story is one that is all too frequent.
