Two senators doubt Medicare compromise

Wall Street Journal, December 14, 2009

Two key senators raised concerns over one aspect of a proposed compromise on the healthcare bill, putting up a hurdle to passage of the measure in the Senate, the Wall Street Journal reports. The proposal to open Medicare to individuals below the age of 65 was a part of a compromise reached among senior Senate Democrats. Under the compromise, the bill wouldn't include a government-run insurance plan. Sens. Joe Lieberman (I, CT.) and Ben Nelson (D, NB) voiced strong doubts about the Medicare proposal, which would allow individuals as young as 55 to buy into the program.
