I’m a little behind in the usual blogging schedule today due to some non-work distractions, but I’ll catch up. Here are some mid-day items of interest:
* Here at Ten Miles Square, Aaron Carroll provides what is probably the definitive case against raising the age of eligibility for Medicare.
* At TNR, Tim Noah argues a “chained CPI” would greatly under-state the actual cost-of-living for Social Security beneficiaries so long as health care costs keep rising.
* At TAP, Abby Rapaport construes the Michigan right-to-work blitz as simple political revenge.
* So it’s not just those who aren’t fiscal hawks who are being urged to become “adult,” as the Post-Election Jennifer Rubin calls Republicans opposing higher tax rates “childish.”
* Nate Silver reviews the very long record of polling data on HRC.
And in non-political news:
* Vermont repeats as the “healthiest state” for 2012 according to rankings by United Health Foundation.
Back very shortly.
