let's NOT forget that I paid in a whole lot more than many for more than 40 years for the "same" insurance benefits at age 65+.

I don't know where to find it, but I would find it hard to believe that those who earn more, and thus pay more in Medicare Premiums during their earning years are much more likely to live old enough to take advantage of Medicare.

I could be wrong, but is it not true that those who earn less die earlier?

Thanks,
Mark
