Why are Social Security and Medicare being included in these negotiations.
Social Security is not a current problem and will not be for 20 years or more. We can wait 10 years to modify social security.
Medicare is a current problem and needs to be dealt with if the AHCA does not bend the cost curve back to something close to inflation. In any case I think raising the age of eligibility for medicare is insane! That is the worse idea I have heard since I started paying into the system. Most of us have to wait on medicare to even think of retiring. Some of us are in very poor health by the time we reach 65 and need medicare because we are not able to work in any case. Without medicare eligibility, we will have to fight for disability. That idea stinks!!!
