    to retire BEFORE age sixty five will have to pay whopping premiums for themselves and their spouse . After sixty five Medicare kicks in and you still have to buy a supplemental . So for many the current system still cost more than many can afford .It's sad that seniors have to spend their 401K or lifes saving on health care , and but for a few short years . That is not a dignified facet of our society .
    This is still not addressing the lower insured and uninsured , but as Wyden's plan suggests the total cost savings would lie in the lower premiums paid to local (county and state) run programs that would make it easier to administrate .
    Under any plan or system that we have or ever had , someone gains , someone loses . Which of those are you ? The Wyden / Bennet plan is by far the best we could hope for .
