The Real Story: Allowing people as young as 50 to buy into Medicare

After another failure by Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), a bipartisan group of Senators is now working instead on fixing problems with the law, problemS that have led to skyrocketing increases in premiums, sharply higher deductibles and co-pays and reduced benefits.  Meanwhile, Democrats in the House, including Connecticut’s Joe Courtney and John Larson, have come up with a new idea:  Allowing people as young as 50 to buy into Medicare.  Larson explains how that would work, and why he thinks it also should appeal to employers.

Guest:  US Rep. John Larson (D-Dist. 1)
