  •  Medicare eligibility is statutory (1+ / 0-)

    You can't get Medicare unless the Medicare statute says you're eligible (over 65 with enough work experience, disabled, kidney disease, etc.).  President Obama doesn't have the authority to extend Medicare to anyone that isn't specified.  In order to do that, the law would need to be changed, which would require a "yes" vote from the republican House.
