3 reasons to open Medicare for buy-in from 55 year-olds up to 65:
1. Healthier sub-group = more money in but less out = more money exchanged for other than healthcare goods = growing economy
2. More providers for preventative care = more steady guaranteed income for providers and negotiating power for Medicare = healthier middle-aged population entering older age = decreased expenses in later life = improved cash available for other purchases = growing economy.
3. Allows last of baby boomers to follow dream of entrepreneurial work without fear of insurance coverage loss = more good jobs for next generation = economic mobility = growing economy
Okay maybe just one reason: good for the economy.
