Dems Oppose Raising Medicare Eligibility Age

That would result in less spending and we can't have that

House Democrats are lining up behind Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) against raising Medicare's eligibility age as part of a year-end tax-and-spending package.

Pelosi rejected raising Medicare's eligibility age in an op-ed published Tuesday in USA Today, then doubled down on that position Wednesday.

"We want what happens to be fair," she said in an interview on CBS's "This Morning" program. "And one of the things that we object to is raising the Medicare age."
