"I wonder how many more folks would retire early if not for the burden of paying for their own private health insurance."

Millions would likely take early retirement if they could get others to pay for their health insurance costs.

That's what you're implying, right?

THe workers have to foist over part of their paychecks to fund those who want to be welfare weenies and queenies and not pay their fair share of their living expenses. Typical socialist argument.

Sorry, if you can't afford early retirement, no retirement for you.

In 20 years, the gov't will be broke and most folks will be paying a LOT MORE for their health care in retirement. Now they pay only 1/4 of what it costs. And have to sock the taxpayers for 3/4 of their health care costs (Medicare).

What is unsustainable ..will crash. Obama and his bean counters said so. Medicare will be crashed by 2023. We'll turn into Greece.

So if you are retired enjoy's not going to be pretty or nice in 10-15 years as the country goes bankrupt.
