6. Yeah, I got your made up shit right here:
Raise Medicare eligibility age to 67 (-$124.8 billion, CBO).

While various permutations are possible, one option is to phase-in an increase of the eligibility age by two months per year, achieving age 67 by 2027.

(see the memo)

This policy idea was floated by the President near the end of the debt ceiling debate.
