    do is muddy the waters about Medicare by bringing up the Obama "cuts."

    The intricacies of funding Medicare is hard to understand especially for many older seniors. The are very susceptible to cross messages that the Rs are pushing.

    If they are not close to their grandkids, they don't have an emotional connection that would cause them to care about how the younger generations will get by without Medicare. They worry about their own wellbeing and believe they've earned their current benefits and don't want anything to disturb their security.

    Many Seniors really do worry about how they will live out their lives and whether their money will last.

    Some advice to younger adults: If you want Medicare as we know it when you get older, better warm up to your grandparents or any older citizen you might know. They vote in droves.

    Progressives will win only when we convince a majority that they, too, are Progressive. And... It’s the Supreme Court, stupid!
