    This item mentions reminds me of what I read in the ’70s or ’80 about Irish people who had spent their working years in the U.S. and paid Social Security taxes during all that time, but were hoping to spend their retirement years in Ireland. Attempts were being made by high ranking politicians on both sides of the Atlantic to make Medicare health coverage available to those retirees in Ireland, but such an arrangement has never been made.
