If we live forever, what does that do to Social Security spending?

Posted by Ed C on Monday, November 23, 2009

Skeptical is not a strong enough word for my feelings towards the promises made by the proponents of health care reform, but Saturday, Senator Harry Reid said:

Today we vote whether to even discuss one of the greatest issues of our generation – indeed, one of the greatest issues this body has ever face: whether this nation will finally guarantee its people the right to live free from the fear of illness and death, which can be prevented by decent heath care for all.

Pretty sure we are all going to die someday regardless if this bill passes or not.  Otherwise congress better start raising the retirement age and reducing benefits real soon.

Of course, I could be misreading Sen. Reid here, maybe he means that instead of fearing illness and death, with a government run heath care system we should just be resigned to it.
