    In 25 years under the current system only 40% of the Medicare costs will be covered by payroll taxes.
    UNSUSTAINABLE system we now have.

    Nevertheless, it's preferrable to the cost of burying all the seniors who'll die in the streets after spending themselves into bankruptcy with CorporateCare.

    Medicare is something that never should have been instituted. But it was and we are now stuck with it.

    When it was first instituted people were croaking at 65. Not they are living into their 90's. No wonder its going broke.

    Jeeze you old fucks, Start dying already LOL

    The entire system is a Ponzi scheme.
    I pay 13K a year, probably over 300K for the last 40 years just into my "account", into it plus corporate matching contributions for others.
    And if I die the day before I start to draw any of it my heirs get ZERO.
    That 300K probably would have grown to over a million bucks.
    Government. It sucks.

    Not that I agree with this, but it does bring up a good point.

    Why aren't we radically raising the Medicare qualification age to like, 75?
