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.
