Yes, I am old enough to remember.
I remember when I was a young worker for a major electronics manufacturing location and they, our government, told us that paying our SS and Medicare taxes was a GOOD THING!
Yep! If we paid those taxes we would be set for life when we retired.
A comfortable RETIREMENT and an assurance of top-level MEDICAL CARE was ours.
We just had to TRUST our government to take care of us!
What a Joke!
Now we are the aging pariahs of a system that just wants us to hurry up and DIE!
Oh, and this was while our arrogant Congress voted themselves separation from “the peoples system” and into one of the must expensive and wasteful system of medical care designed just for them!
FULL COVERAGE! for Everything! For LIFE!
Yes, I remember!
