I think they should LOWER the age for Medicare. It's hard for people to remain employed until age 65. I don't know what the life expectancy is now, but I can't imagine that it's what it used to be. Many people have died from curable diseases simply because they didn't have the money for their meds or adequate healthcare. There are people that are eligible for Medicare, but won't apply for it because they don't want the stigma of being on the public dole. I tell ya', this is one mentally ill effing country. When those wingers get up there on the floor of the House or Senate and brag that we have the best medical care system in the world, I want to reach right into that TV and slap them. Take them by the shoulders and shake them. If you haven't seen Michael Moore's SICKO, get it. And make your family's watch it. Make your friends watch it. Go check it out of the Library. If there's not one there, buy it on the internet and when you have showed it to all your family and friends, donate it to the library.
