    The current age for Medicare eligibility is 65.

    In 5 years, raise the age to 70.

    In 10 more years, raise the age to 72.

    Raise the age by 1 year every 10 years thereafter for 50 years.

    :hat:





    Seriously, would you oppose this? Why is it not being rationally discussed?

    If GHP was here, she'd surely make a joke about Dave currently being on Medicare.

    Undoubtedly.

    But reality dictates that I will be eligible in 23 years. At this point in my life, I would totally and completely accept not beginning benefits for another 31 years. No problem. I'd rather accept that, than a coupon for $6,000.

    Raising retirement age is not the answer. There are fewer and fewer jobs as it is and you want the workforce to remain at those jobs till their 70? It doesn't add up.

    the real solution is...

    Apply the Social Security tax to all wages, including those above $110,100. Workers making $200,000 in wages would get a tax increase of $5,574, an amount their employers would have to match. Their future benefits would increase, too. This option would eliminate 72 percent of the shortfall. Two years ago, it would have wiped out 99 percent.
