Blue Jay, though the elderly may be morally entitled to social security and medicare, congress has the legal right to cancel that "entitlement." And it is almost a certainty that as debt becomes greater that congress will indeed cancel it, though it will likely do so by degrees with some combination of of inflating the currency, upping the retirement age, decreasing medicare payments, further limiting what medicare will pay for, means testing of social security payouts, etc., etc. Unfortunately, the elderly didn't pay for their own benefits; they paid for the benefits of their parents, not to mention everything else congress has squandered money on over the years.

You may want to consider that when we have moved from mandated health insurance to mandated health care (a very short leap), the elderly and infirm will not be able to pull a trigger or defend themselves when the progressive fascist state must make decisions on how to allocate dwindling health care resources. And don't worry if you disagree or protest there will be an appropriate diagnosis for your mental "disorder" and a corresponding "treatment". And people who now think of themselves as good, moral and upright will simply stand by and watch to protect themselves.
