I Kept Wondering Why Ryan Picked the Age of 55

  If I were in my early fifties, my thinking would go like this: “Every day for the next 19 years, 10000 baby boomers will reach age 65.  Medicare goes under in 2016.Forbes Last year Social Security Foxnews started paying out more than it received and the disability portion goes dry in four more years. 

Democrats say 'no problema.   You  believing us, or your lying eyes?'

Ryan says he can keep those safety net programs for Mama just as she expects them.  And that he can fix them for people my age in time.  Either that or at 65 I am toast.

I should at least give him a listen.  After all, Obama has known this was coming his whole four years and no plan in sight.”

Physicians are retiring in large numbers just as baby boomers are starting to turn 65–over 1/3 of doctors in next 10 years. Over half of them give Obamacare as the reason.

36% of today’s physicians not accepting new Medicare patients.

What I have been worrying about, Peggy Noonan wrote on over the weekend. Noting that we Americans should not be so proud of our skepticism and cynicism. “Someday we’ll be told something true that we need to know and we won’t believe that, either.” Wall Street Journal says today that Ryan’s plan to save Medicare is the only plan out there which won’t throw grandma off the cliff. As Lily Thomlin’s Edith Ann liked to say: “and that’s the truth!”

When it all comes crashing down, I wonder who the liberals will try and blame.
