View Diary: Are Democrats abandoning raising the Medicare eligibility age? (202 comments)

  •  Just as Walmart basically "uses" the Federal (0+ / 0-)

    Govt (and its programs) to subsidize its workers' low wages; so does this proposal to raise the medicare age shift funding to other sources, such as state govts, medicaid, charities, etc.

    Why not do a reverse-subsidy, and make Walmart pick up the tab for those 65-66 y.o. seniors of low income caught in the great in between?

    Ok, I am joking, but it's no more far-fetched an idea than what we hear every day from red state legislatures.

    Buy Aldus Shrugged : The Antidote to Ayn Rand, and tear Ayn and the GOP new orifices. Plus, I get a small royalty, and Jeff Bezos and his employees get the rest. Not a bad deal, as CEO Bezos is not much of a dick, relatively speaking. @floydbluealdus1
