    gets cheaper for every age group you open it up to, all the way down to Medicare For All.

    There's probably nothing internal to Medicare that makes 55 a special number.

    Now if it was offered as a jobs program --allowing 55 and up to retire or become self-employed, thereby freeing up millions of jobs for Gen X and younger-- that would be a good reason to pick age 55.

    Of course the Republicans want all these things shut down completely, not expanded or improved, so any improvement they won't tolerate.
