What are your plans for the future?

Medicare benefits are expected to depleted by 2019, and Social Security by 2041
Chicago Sun Times

Resources in the Medicare trust fund that pays hospital benefits are expected to depleted by 2019, and reserves in the Social Security trust fund are expected to be exhausted by 2041, according to an annual report from trustees.

Both dates are the same as last year.

"The financial difficulties facing Social Security and Medicare pose enormous challenges,'' the trustees said in their report. ''The sooner these challenges are addressed, the more varied and less disruptive their solutions can be.''

We’re spending so much money on Social Security and Medicare that the programs - which are larger than any other line item on our national budget up to and including defense spending and war spending - are actually going to run out of money. And the solution? Make Americans pay more for the programs while getting less out of them.

It states in the Bible
Only the sick need a
They that be (whole)need not!

to be sick is not

Fact: The gift of
Herbs Bearing Seeds
quoted in Genesis,
was left for healing purposes
True or False?

The Phrophets above
are probably shaking their
heads at the Illusional
it's nothing better
than a Cure given by
& theirs nothing to it
no side affects
Just FATIH with works

And no deductible is

Real talk can't be
