The United States is, I estimate, within ten years of total collapse, as we will be unable to pay anything close to our obligations. The unfunded liability of just the current Medicare program is, as you well know, about $38 trillion, and growing. Each year Congress kicks that can down the road, aided and abetted by the AARP. But each year the can gets heavier, and soon will be impossible to kick. Social security and other entitlement programs add to the looming disaster.
Now AARP has supported adding the horrific liability of a government healthcare plan to the impossible burden, which inevitably will cost far more than the politicians are telling us, hastening the inevitable fiscal disaster, with hyper-inflation as in Zimbabwe and economic disintegration. The Medicaid expansion will ruin the budgets and economies of most states. And all you can think of is getting more for the short term.
We are all locked into this Ponzi scheme, having paid into it under coercion, so I’ll have to sign up at 65 with the rest of the sheeple.
There is nothing I can do to stop it, but as a Marine Vietnam veteran who offered my life to protect this country, I don’t have to lend my name to it.
Future generations living in abject poverty will loath you and the politicians whose short term greed ruined the best country in the world.
