Plan for $30 trillion in future elderly medical expenditure

Alan believes that the government must face up to our future obligation by planning for the exponential increase in elderly medical expenditures by planning now with realistic policies with affordable eligibility requirements. The alternative is a 30 trillion dollar fiscal train wreck that most politicians choose to ignore.
