Extremely Great Ideas

Atrios suggests:

1) Temporarily lower full benefit retirement age to 62, and partial benefit to 60.
2) Medicare eligibility to 60, Medicare buy-in at 55 (individuals or businesses employing them).
3) Allow primary residential mortgages in bankruptcy.

Of course, since this makes perfect sense in terms of reviving our pretty awful economy, the people who rule us will not take it seriously.  In fact, since we DFHs think this would work, the pundits will poo-poo it as not serious.  I say, fuck them.  Let's really push this idea big time.  The internets/tubes will help.
