    If we are having a serious discussion about runaway medical costs, then why aren't we talking about having everyone 50+ eligible for Medicare? It puts healthier people in the Medicare mix and takes less healthy people off the private insurance rolls.

    There may be legitimate reasons why this wouldn't work, but it's telling that this isn't even part of the conversation.
