      Oh dear indeed! I hope Bill just got up grumpy. Maybe he has a Magnesium deficiency. As for me, I also am just turning 70 and turned out to pasture. I might add with a LOT less money than Bill Gross! But my thoughts are:” Hey, maybe I’ve still got 20 years to enjoy life. Maybe even 30.” This despite the activity of politicians of BOTH parties to reduce my pensions to poverty level. Much more than death, I fear TPP destroying the economy and turning Life into a Living Hell for everyone except the 0.1%

      Naw, Democrats aren’t out to reduce you pensions. That’s the Republican’s you’re talking about.

      Maybe climate disaster will end the misery. The ‘man’ working for the .01% could “do” (what the Nazis did for) the ghettoes and near ghettoes.

      A few neighborhoods in Baltimore have life expectancies lower than anywhere in the world except Yemen.

      One party opposed Social Security, One party opposed Medicare, Two parties deregulated financial services and then One party advocated privatizing Social Security two years before the greatest crash since 1929 (which the same party fomented, ironically), One party proposed vouchers and used the crisis they created to make a 3rd [50th?] attempt at ending Social Secuirty [‘it’s a Ponzi scheme’], One party fought like crazy to end unions and the last non-federal defined benefit plans. The GOP. Enjoy!

      VennData, intlacct I submit to you that Bowles of Bowles-Simpson was a Democrat and that President Obama (supposedly a Democrat) has repeatedly called for chained CPI and means testing Social Security. It’s NOT just one Party. It’s all the corporatists in Washington.

      I believe, but can’t cite that HRC has also flirted with these ideas.
