Actually, the age for Medicare eligibility should be lowered so that everyone is eligible.

Why is Tennessee a Republican state when issues like cutting medicare or raising the age comes up ...then the people say 77% no and 42% yes??? This doesn't add up...Republicans are always against cutting programs that help the majority of people...

Republicans...medicare is not free ...it comes out of my paycheck every payday...as well as making up for your tax breaks

Moon4kat and Sandyonsignal are correct. Single payer will reduce health care costs and lower the deficit.

All these social programs have one thing in common....one word and that is MANDATORY! Social Securtiy - Mandatory; Medicare - Mandatory; Obamacare - Mandatory.....for a political party that's supposed to be about choice it sure doesn't seem like it.
