So the new healthcare compromise coming from the Senate would be lowering the age of Medicare buy-in to 55 from the current 65.
Sounds like a good idea to me. If we're not getting a public option out of the Senate (and we're not) then I like this as part of a compromise. It sets the precedent to lower the bar more in the future and lays the ground work for a Medicare-for-almost-all in the future. Which is exactly what a lot of us lefties wanted in the first place.
Anyway, devil is in the details and I reserve the right to be horrified by some aspect of the compromise at a future date but on the surface this isn't too bad.
