What makes you think someone else will pay for 75% of my healthcare at 65? I've done the math. Between Medicare part B, the new part D, and a good Medicare supplement, my health care premiums won't change significantly at 65.

And how do you think I feel when I read about all the public employees whose premiums I'm helping to pay with my tax dollars. Especially when they threaten to strike if required to pay an extra $10 a month for health polices that are much better than anything I can afford as an individual.
