If you give up Medicare Part A you loose your social security benefits-WTF

The headline is correct .See here for background on this agency ruling that makes the headline true.
See here for my earlier posting of what a federal judge considered a "mandatory entitlement".
 
The absurdity of this situation has been challenged in court and lost in the trial court and in the appeal but now efforts are underway to put the issue to the Supreme Court.

I have blogged about this before and thought the issue was settled but thanks to folks at Cato the fight goes on.
