Joe Biden Calls for Medicare Eligibility Age to Be Lowered from 65 to 60

In campaign news, former Vice President Joe Biden has unveiled plans to lower the age of Medicare eligibility from 65 to 60 and to forgive student loan debts for certain lower-income people. Senator Bernie Sanders’s former campaign secretary Briahna Joy Gray responded on Twitter, “That he’s willing to shift on these issues after telling us they were ‘pie-in-the-sky’ indicates that we can go further. Lower the age to 55 year one, 45 year two, 35 year 3, & cover everyone in year 4. That’s Medicare For All. Tax Wall Street and cancel all student debt.”
