A dilema for thought------2 people-1st person works hard saves lots of their income,perhaps goes without luxury items,vacations,etc.,retires with comfortable sum just as they had planned,-2nd person works little,saves little,lives for today,----both get illness in later years,2nd person gets gov't coverage now ,1st person now has to spend all their savings before gov't coverage,also both could end up in same room getting same treatment,one private pay ,one gov't-----hmmm
