    McAuliffe is 60. All 3 are in much better shape than Trump. Bernie,too.
    I'd say Hickenlooper is an even MORE youthful 65. He looks almost ten years younger than that.

    Maybe America will be ready for a couple of GROWN-UPS after Donald Trump. I would like to think so.

    It's the PSYCHOLOGICAL age that really matters, you know.

    They are presenting it to Congress after getting Govornors to join them.

    At this point I think many Republicans would jump at a solution. It is exploding in their faces due to their inaction for 7 years now.

    If you are in good health and mentally sound,65 is not old at all.

    I bet I could beat Trump in a foot race. I do 12 to 1500 leg exercises in the pool. Am good at the Elliptical too. They are closing the pool for 10 days to clean and paint so will have to go on them

    My good looking Trainer encouraged me this morning.

    True but the progressives are against it already. Saw they are putting out a "Medicare for All" bill on or around Sep 20.

    "The United States National Health Care Act, or the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act (H.R. 676) is a bill introduced in the United States House of Representatives by Representative John Conyers (D-MI).[1] As of August 12, 2017, it had 116 cosponsors,[2] which amounts to a majority of the Democratic caucus in the House of Representatives and is the highest level of support the bill has ever received."

    That does not mean they will reject the bill. I am sure they will negotiate. There are 42 Problem Solvers in Congress.

    So their plan, which is the only one that anyone on the left can come up with is to use taxpayer money to bail out insurers.

    They call it reinsurance.

    But its a bailout, basically state funded healthcare.

    Why don't you guys just come out with single payer already, that's what you want.

    Everyone pays for everyone else, jack everyone's taxes up by 40% to pay for it.

    That is your only solution so just do it already.
