'I'd Like To Retire Before I'm Old Enough To Be Eligible For Medicare'

Rob Roy, 60, is a technical sales consultant from Milton. As a transplant recipient, one of the most important issues to him this election season is health care.

Roy had a liver transplant two years ago and said he wonders if he will have to keep working in order to keep his insurance.

"I'd like to retire before I'm old enough to be eligible for Medicare," he said. "I could retire next year if I had insurance, but that's probably not going to be the case, so I'm gonna have to keep working until I'm old enough to get Medicare."

In addition to addressing health care, he wants to know what the candidates are going to do to change the political discourse. Something he called: unacceptable.

"I'm tired of people who think it's OK to be nasty to each other," he said. "I'm concerned that our country is becoming ... not nice."
