Interesting chart in NY Times on life between the ages of 57 and 85.
Ezra Klein has good post on Massachusetts and level of cover via this exchange approach....96% with the number of folks getting penalized for not signing up dropping year 1 to year 2.
And Joe Lieberman has apparently said he will filibuster any bill with Medicare buy in included. Sen. Lieberman was invited to be among the 'gang of 10' negotiating, but never showed up for meetings and was replaced by Sen. Pryor....so now I think it really looks like he: (1) really loves being on television and the center of attention; (2) maybe doesn't actually want a deal, but won't negotiate in good faith up front; (3) and has been really inconsistent in alot of his policy arguments on why he is for/against certain things. Anyone remember one of the key parts of the Gore/Lieberman 2000 health policy campaign? Yep, he was for a Medicare buy in for those 55-64 before he was against it.
