See how it works?" I guess I don't. So does that mean if I'm lower income I should get SS earlier? We should scale the benefits time table based on income level? Haven't ever heard that before. "But since Medicare provides more coverage for less cost than any private alternative we should be expanding Medicare eligibility, not decreasing it anyway." Does that include the Medicare fraud component? “The people who need Medicare earlier are usually lower income. See how it works?” I guess I don’t.
