  •  There are two reasons it's great economically (10+ / 0-)

    Allowing folks to buy in at 50 makes great economic sense. It reduces the cost of medicare and medical services overall, because people don't delay treatment and the billing/reimbursement system is standardized.

    It also takes many high payed top execs off the benefit rolls. Many would continue to consult, but that makes room for lower echelon jobs on the ladder.

    And why won't it happen? Because the insurance companies know how much people would like it.
