Not a big fan of Sen Graham, but in this case he's right. Entitlements like Medicare and Social Security should be means tested and them as has the means should not receive the benefits.

Medicare is not free. The cost is deducted from Social Security checks every month as well as the cost for Part D medicare. Maybe wealthier people should pay more, but get the facts straight.

All members of congress should buy their own health insurance and not the tax payers. Eliminate ALL tax payer retirement benefits for members of congress.

Medicare A is acquired through payroll deductions throughout your working years or by way of a spouse that worked. Part B and D are deducted from your SS monthly check.

Senator Graham seems to think it is ok for him to get free health care paid for by the tax payers.
Screw Senator Graham.

AARP doesn't think poor seniors deserve free health care either. The pushed hard for obamacare and the $500billion cut to Medicare. They do believe they should sell every senior insurance. Less coverage in Medicare means more 'supplemental' insurance sales. AARP started out as an insurance company. They are both for profit and non-profit so they can scam seniors on hand and tell them how much they care on the other.

I agree and have had no problem at all getting discounts.AARP fell in love with Obama and did a deal maintaining income for themselves while sticking it to seniors.
