    “Deserving seniors” have been committing intergenerational theft for decades via a Ponzi scheme so massive, so corrupt that it would make Bernie Madoff blush.

    Senior numbers are on the rise while docs are declining; you get more of what you subsidize, and less of what you tax.

    Okay, THAT’s funny. And accurate.

    I’m between the “kids” age and the “oldtimers” age, so I can see it all very clearly.
    I don’t need the insurance myself (barring unforeseen accidents), but my family does, but I’ll never retire and spend decades travelling the world and having fun like my parents are doing either.

    But, yeah, that brilliantly summarizes the rock-bottom basic reasons why the ACA will fail.
    Other systems could be, and have been, devised that would work well for us, and would help the US economy as well, but the ACA sure ain’t it.
