Seniors are set to outnumber children for the first time in American history within six years, as experts warn that the country is about to struggle with a dramatically aging population.

The 'silver tsunami' has already seen the burden on working age people double since 1960 when there were six workers for every over-65.

And millions now risk having no-one to help them as the poorly-paid care industry is squeezed out by better paid jobs in a tight labor market.

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Are there no work farms? Gov handouts.  If they would rather die, they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.  Make room for our new "visitors" Biden is welcoming.

  • I don't believe in Trump anymore, he's an illusion
Canada has a plan for cost cutting when it comes to the old and infirm draining the government purse....euthanasia, are you tired? euthanize!,  infirm? euthanize!, unhappy? euthanize!, can't remember shit? euthanize! born with any sort of disability? euthanize! question Trudy or his policies? get euthanized! All of this is on the democrats wish list and has been ever since Obama care was rammed up our...sphincters. Seniors in America on SS and Medicare are draining valuable resources from the democrats ability to give free shit to illegal aliens.

Silvers who are not financially capable or set will be especailly vulnerable, adding the point of  the realzation that there will be a tipping point that government confiscation of wealth will be routine.

Decades and decades of poor governmental decisons will have he end result of a New American Dystopia.  Glad I'm approaching 70, rather than 40 or 50.

Not in my locale. Everyone's having babies a plenty. They present a broad number that doesn't represent the regional differences across the country.

And more cuts to Social Security and Medicare are coming whether people like Trump and his Democrat buddies like it or not

You can’t defeat math.  They’re just isn’t enough people to pay for all the people that are on these programs and shipping illegals into this country is not going to make these programs solvent,  either


And medical staff are being told they have to take more patients which increases burnout

I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

most of the people I know who can have children are so much in debt from school they can't afford a house let alone children.

There won't be "cuts" ... cost of living increases won't keep up with inflation, co-pays will increase, and hospital reimbursement rates will decrease.

One of my doctors has already stopped accepting insurance and opened a cash-only concierge practice.

They will manipulate the interpretation of the math with language - euphemisms, semantics, and wordsmithing.

 The govt is allowing the fentanyl deaths because it is getting rid of the useless eaters of society who will never  contribute to society but a deficit
Yeah yeah yeah some innocent people have died from fentanyl with spiked drinks or counterfeit meds but 9.9 out of 10 are basically losers. Not all

A local guy near me just od a few months ago. EMTs went to his house 9 times in the past to narcan him. No steady job, 3 kids out of wedlock, 9 criminal convictions for theft, shoplifting  on and on . Good riddance . I know of at least ,2 local business owners celebrated his death after he stole thousands of dollars of tools and supplies from them.

The small percentage innocent folks are acceptable collateral damage the govt is willing to accept

I live in a high  meth / fentanyl area and nearly all the od deaths are people who do not have their act together . I read the Facebook post after a local person died. "No great loss" "About time" type of comments is common.  People are sick of these people. Most steal, rob or sell drugs to support their habit

Is there a secret govt program pushing this to get rid of people?  No, but it the people were contributing members of society the drugs would stop

Along the lines if a beautiful white girl is kidnapped the nations stops and on the news 24/7. A ugly black or poor white kidnapped girl from the ghetto? Crickets

What does this  have to do with the age demgraphic issue around SS/health care?  Try to focus.

The first step of a  way of getting rid of people who will never contribute to SS or Medicare. It will progress into euthanasia as another mentioned of people of all ages will be eliminated and become common practice in the future so they do not waste tax dollars.   They will compare getting rid of granny or a disabled child as doing a good thing like putting down Spot the dog to put them out of their misery  and it will be advertised as a  compassionate and kind procedure
