It seems obvious to me that the good old USA is in a transition period. The American dream is sadly becoming less of a reality being replaced with rewards for being lazy in exchange for less and less liberty (freedom) which some would unwittingly exchange for support for their beliefs.
The proposal to raise the age requirement for Medicare from 65 to 67 is a continuation of the undermining of the work ethic in this country. If this doesn't affect you or any of your family or friends it might be easy to disregard. But, when a people starts neglecting its responsibilities to people that have contributed significantly to society they are definately undermining something none of us can afford to lose.
