Romanoff: "Lower the age of Medicare eligibility to zero."

"What does the country need to do to move health care reform forward?" U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff was asked at the recent "Be the Change" candidate forum in Denver.

"We should lower the age of Medicare eligiblity to zero," Romanoff replied. In other words, a universal health care system with a single payer, i.e., the TAXPAYERS.

U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (a stand-in for Romanoff's primary opponent, U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet) said he agreed with a "universal, single payer model." Then he explained Bennet's position, which is for the public option (which Polis ALSO SUPPORTS as an alternative.)

Here's a question for Colorado voters: can we AFFORD to have Bennet, Romanoff or Polis anywhere near the U.S. Treasury?
