Politicians who can charge people Medicare taxes on hundreds or even millions of dollars of income will have lots of ways to charge people for Medicare coverage. Charge people while they were working, then charge them again when they are retired. Perhaps charge them again when they die. Politicians are endlessly creative when it comes to raising money.
