Hoosiers Testify to Benefits of the Health Reform Law
Republicans’ plan to end Medicare and force seniors to find private insurance with the assistance of a voucher that decreases in value over time has an immediate impact on active workers’ retirement plans. Americans under 55 better start saving a lot more for retirement.
According to the Center for Economic and Policy Research, individuals who are 54 years old today would need to save $182,000 –$250 a week for the next 11 years – by the time they retire just to pay the additional costs imposed by the Republican plan. This amount is over and above what these individuals should already be trying to save for a normal retirement. For those younger than 5, the numbers are even more startling.
