    costs in general, not with Medicare.

    We can't wait ten years, and then tell people who are 65, ok, we're changing things for you. If things are going to change for someone who is now 45, we need to start talking about that now so that 45 year old will know what he/she can count on and what he/she can't count on.
    It sounds as though you're assuming the solution is going to involve cutting benefits or otherwise providing less care to patients. I don't assume that at all. We know it's possible to provide care for far less money because every other country is already doing it.

    We decided to move the center farther to the right by starting the whole debate from a far-right position to begin with. - Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay
