Nothing To See Here: Bill Nelson's claims about Medicare reform

Florida's Democratic Party senator Bill Nelson keeps sending me email messages asking for money. Sometimes he utters something that looks like it's supposed to be fact instead of opinion.

Like this:
They called for dismantling Medicare as we know it in favor of a private plan that would raise the eligibility age from 65 to 70 and shift much of the cost of health-care coverage from the government to the elderly.
The purpose of the "Nothing To See Here" category, of course, is to see if what seems questionable to a conservative ends up with a PolitiFact fact check.
