Mitt Romney: Newest Medicare recipient?

He just turned 65 yesterday.  Medicare coverage comes in two parts – Medicare Part A, which covers hospital care and Medicare Part B, which covers doctors.  While your average multimillionaire has the financial resources to decline Part B, there’s no “escaping” Part A [1].  You paid taxes for it (although Mitt paid less % than most!) and it’s yours, just like Social Security.  Of course, how do you rail against “government health care” when you get it along with everyone else who turned 65?
