I'm hoping I don't live long enough to end up under the slimey, tattered Medicare umbrella.<quoted text>
Then somebody else went off topic 'cause the post I replied to used a "90 year old" in its example. In any case, what you're saying is misleading at best. With skyrocketing health care costs its likely that you or any other Medicare recipient will outspend what they paid into the system. That's why Medicare's unfunded liability is considerably higher that Social Security's.
See how that works? I've been successfully brainwashed to prefer dying than getting old in America.
