Financial Insecurity Revisited

Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence wrote that citizens are entitled to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”.

How is that possible without basic necessities, including food, housing and health?

Three programs are going to be under siege this year:  The Affordable Healthcare Act, Medicare and Social Security.  The goal of reformers, intentional or not, will be to make healthcare unaffordable for millions of Americans.

The US is already the only industrialized nation in which life expectancy is correlated with wealth.  Life expectancy is 88 for the wealthy, and 72 for poor males.

Watch this space, as I will provide details about the reform proposals that won’t appear in the mass media.  As usual, I will document carefully my sources, so that you can draw your own conclusions based on the data.

I’m very concerned.
