Links? IIRC, about a quarter will be in very good or great shape, another half will be more or less OK if they get what's comin' to 'em, and the bottom quarter will be in tough shape. If they cut SS across the board, many will starve or become homeless, just as they did before SS was enacted. And there are d@mn few SRO fleabag hotels anymore where such folks used to live, in cities anyhow.

There are still some SRO hotels like that here in Chicago, but they tend to be dreadful, dreadful places. And not all that cheap, either, for what they are.
