30. It would have been a death sentence for me.
I had accumulated a pile of medical problems before I turned 65, that I was able to take care of once I got Medicare. Two more years without seeing a doctor and getting the treatment and surgeries that I needed would have been a death sentence to me. Medicare should really be given at age 55, if they can't see the way to giving Medicare to everyone who wants it.

The trouble with younger people and that includes Presidents, they don't see how awful it is to negotiate our medical system after middle age unless they are caught up in it themselves.
