100. Yes. This is a death sentence for that minority of people
who desperately need medical care between the ages of 65-67.

This is no exaggeration. I have had friends who died of cancer just about between those years.

In fact, we should open Medicare up to people 55 and over right now because so many people in that age group have been laid off or lost their businesses in this recession. Health insurance after age 55 can be very expensive because you most certainly have at least one, usually more than one, pre-existing condition.

People 55 and over should not have to pay the ransom that insurance companies charge just to stay alive.
