First and foremost—congratulations to Matthew and Amanda on their
wedding!!! Now to the outrage!!!
In Friday’s Boston Globe , health reporter Alice Dembner reports the plight of a 60 year old woman who has to pay twice the amount for health insurance as a 27 year old. “That’s discrimination!!” she says in the article.
Yet MSNBC reports that, “ a typical couple retiring in 2020 will have paid about $100,000 in lifetime Medicare taxes. ‘For that price, this couple is scheduled to receive about $500,000 in lifetime Medicare benefits over and above the premiums it additionally pays in retirement.’
Also, has anyone checked out how much more it costs to get auto insurance
for a 20 year old versus a 60 year old?
