Please provide us the source(s) that support your numbers as I've not seen them anywhere else. Social Security pays out approx $820B/year, substantially more tharen the approx $550B paid out in Medicare benefits. Where are these "extra 200 plus million that it is currently not covering" going to come from? There are about 330 million people living in the US. There are about 50 million covered by Medicare and around 260 million covered by private insurance. Are you expecting those on Medicare to live another 40-50 years or long enough for 60% of those with private coverage to retire and go onto Social Security. If we're to have a rational debate we need some back up. Thanks.
