Raising Medicare Eligibility Age

15 Feb 2013

Raising Medicare Eligibility Age

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Monday that Obama no longer supports raising the eligibility age for Medicare from 65 to 67. The Washington Post’s Ezra Klein writes that the shift is not terribly surprising, considering that there is evidence to suggest that the hike is not all that productive, and “the potential big deals that led the White House to mull raising the Medicare eligibility age are no longer available.”
