    Such an option-based reform could eventually emerge as a compromise way to prevent Medicare’s projected bankruptcy in 13 years.

    How about some revenue from the wealthy who will never have the financial need for Medicare? After all, if it wasn't for the exploitation of the lower and middle classes, there would be no wealthy class. The wealthy need only think of it as a reinvestment on the wage-slave trade.

      Especially adopting the "bankrupt" framing.  It (intentionally) conjures up an image of a system completely out of money.
