Prediction for Today's Infants

My wife says that she recently read a report predicting that fifty (50) percent of those people born after the year 2000 will probably live to be 100.   That will be a LOT of centenarians still walking around.

If that turns out to be true, then it stands to reason that social security, medicare, and many other things need to be put on a much firmer footing not later but RIGHT NOW!   --Instead of listening to the Teapublicans, who are working as hard as they can to -- in the words of S. Palin and others -- "take the country back," presumably.to where it was when people were doing good to reach age 55.
