Medicare looks like it's on the chopping board

So, this doesn’t seem to be getting really any play except for Talking Points Memo. But Paul Ryan’s budget has a phase out of medicare. It’s quite likely that this will actually be coming up for a vote again in January now that they have Trump to sign it. This should be horrifying if you’re over 40 because you’ll either have to put off retirement down the line to keep insurance through your employer or work a lot longer just to earn enough to cover private insurance when you retire.

Josh Marshall at TPM is not one to be overly dramatic so if he’s saying this is very much a real possibility I believe him.
