How about raising the Medicare age on the top one percent? [View all]

Raise it to age 70. Use all the RW/right-leaning arguments:

means testing

people are living longer

save the government money (and put the burden on affected seniors)

strengthen ACA (and put the burden on affected seniors)The top one percent can afford to pay for private insurance for a few more years and they're the ones living longer.

It also has the added benefit of capturing most of the members of Congress who support this crap.

Raising Medicare age: "terrible," "fiscally irresponsible" policy, but Republicans want it so OK?
