I now pay roughly triple the normal Medicare rates, due to the installment sale proceeds from the sale of a business

So will you be paying the higher premium only for a limited time until the payments are done?

I've been on partial food stamps (when I had an infant and toddler and my ex lost his job and didn't find another for several months). I would rather not qualify for food stamps. Or low Medicare premiums, come to that. However, not being in the top 5%, we will qualify for 95%ile Medicare premiums when we turn 65 next year. Wanna trade?

As Mama used to say, don't complain about a lot of taxes, it means you made a lot of money. Of course, that was before anyone heard of Mitt Romney =8~0

promises the politicians of both parties made to buy votes

It isn't possible that some politicians care to prevent the elder poverty and lack of medical care that were common before Social Security and Medicare?
