Quick question on raising the Medicare eligibility age

I’m just curious. I’m seeing a lot more talk about raising the Medicare retirement age than I have before. My thoughts on that are a matter of record.

But every time I ask about what will happen to 65 and 66 year olds, specifically how will they get insurance, I’m greeted with hand waving and mumbling about the health care exchanges and the PPACA. Given that many states have refused to implement exchanges, and a significant portion of the country wants to repeal the law, do people still support raising the eligibility age without the PPACA in place?

Why isn’t this the first question asked of everyone who supports raising the eligibility age, “You  support the PPACA then, right”?
