Sacrifice the Old Ones

After all, they're old.

At a hearing before the deficit Super Committee, former Clinton White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles argued that the Affordable Care Act should allow Democrats to accept raising the Medicare eligibility age, because it creates a system of subsidized, guaranteed private health insurance for people who don’t qualify for government programs like Medicare and Medicaid. And he outlined a plan — framed as a pitch to Democrats — that would total nearly $4 trillion in deficit reduction over 10 years, including a higher Medicare retirement age.


I think that's a much better option than sacrificing the young healthy people in poverty. THEY can be used in the military.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
