Rep. Anthony Weiner, an advocate of a government-run, or single-payer health care system, is a fan of the proposal to expand Medicare to those over age 55.
“Extending this successful program to those between 55 and 64, a plan I proposed in July, would be the largest expansion of Medicare in 44 years and would perhaps get us on the path to a single payer model,” Weiner told the New York Daily News.
I made largely the same point in a column (except for the part about Medicare being a “successful program”).
