They plan to get us coming and going. What a great slogan. "Get them coming and going." It is true that a lot of money is spent on the last six months of many lives with very little benefit to show for it. All old people are not demented and invalid. I will be 91 in February and can still kick higher than my head. Of course, I have been retired since age 75, so I am a "drawer" or a "taker" and not a producer or a maker, but I was an active doctor for fifty-one years (including internship, residency and two years service in the army).
