We have paid into Medicare our entire working lives. Republicans have worked against the poor and the middle class for my entire lifetime. I’m 9 years from retirement. If we had equal pay laws and living wages for everyone, an equitable healthcare system, equality for all Americans, a strong Medicare and social security system, there would be a lot less poverty and homelessness and we wouldn’t be fighting these battles day after day for decades on end. Every politician of my lifetime has campaigned on these issues in every election for 50 plus years! Let’s do something to get them right and do it now! And we have to put a long expiration date on all of it so a Republican can’t come in and undo it all in a future election.
Oh, and what JimK said.
