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.If full SS does not kick in until 67, why should Medicare kick in at 65? Logically, those two should have the same starting age.Since Obamacare is going to cap the cost of insurance for old people, those age 60 to 66 should be able to find insurance cheaper than what is currently available. The price will be subsidized via either the fed or the higher fees paid by everyone younger (Community Pricing).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.No longer an issue with pre-existing condition no longer exluded.That idea stinks!!! The simple fact is that ACA has made raising the medicare eligibity aid much much easier, and likely.
