    They are a big part of what is causing health care prices to rise.

    Social Security needs to be completely scraped, the nut jobs in Washington have proven that they can't keep their hands out of the cookie jar.
    Interesting. So how do people, especially the elderly, get healthcare, meds, etc.? It sounds to me like you'd like to see them rounded up and eliminated. Is this your final solution?

    Yes it is, right after I establish the Nazi empire.

    What you and others are not understanding is that those programs are unsustainable and no amount of Nazi name calling is going to fix it.

    At this moment, the government has an internal debt of around 35-50 trillion.
    That is between Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid.

    For more info on my Nazi empire see link below.

    You're right, how did ANYONE live past the age of 65 before Medicare? How did they survive before the invention of all the $10k/month prescriptions that allow 80 year olds on feeding tubes to lie there, mildly sentient, for a few extra years? How did the elderly make do without Medicare Part D?

    God, it just sounds unfathomable. Almost like a Nazi regime.

    A good portion lived with their children.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    1) Okay, but even if true, so what? If people are going to be a burden on someone, it should be their family, not my family.

    2) Do you think that markedly more old people lived with their family, say, 5 or 10 years ago? If not, that's not responsible for the recent upswing in costs.
