  •  Raising the age for Medicare (1+ / 0-)

    eligibility is the worst idea of any that have been floated...it could even increase costs. Raising the age for Social Security retirement again is a bad idea and propbably won't save much money as more and more people are forced to take early retirement due to lack of work.

    The best thing to do on entitlements is kick the can down t he road. The least objectionable "reform" would probably be jiggering the COLA formula.
