This is really all a non-issue. The democrats have a plan, and it's very simple.
1. Use Obamacare and its various mandates and requirements to completely bankrupt the medical insurance industry along with many hospitals and drug companies, and drive many doctors into retirement.
2. Use the crisis they create to effectively cut off all life extending medical care for medicare & medicaid recipients, by cutting compensation rates even more. In other words, the next potentially fatal illness you get when you retire is what you are going to die from.
3. Reduce average years of retirement from 15+ down to maybe 5.
Presto! Economy saved!
