It's fucking stupid to give welfare to the richest age demographic. As a bleeding heart liberal you should get that.Those in their 50s are at the height of their earning power and many of their parents are dead and have claims to estates. This makes little sense for federally subsidized healthcare.This is a good piece of legislation. It will help all Americans. Not just those who qualify to buy into Medicare.
It helps those who are below the age of 50 by taking more people who need health care out of the insurance pool thus premiums for those below 50 can be lower.
Unfortunately I have no hope that this will pass the republican non stop filibuster in the Senate. The only way to get this bill passed into law is to remove the filibuster which I don't support.
I do support democracy and wish the republicans in our Senate would stop with the non stop filibuster to let democracy finally return to the Senate.
A group of Democratic senators re-introduced a bill on Wednesday that would expand Medicare access across the country.www.aol.com
It makes perfect sense as it stops cost shifting and supports a healthy workforce. Medicare is paid for by Payroll Taxes.
