Aging is inevitable, and expensive.
I am age 60, and in the same boat as you.

Those Good Ole’ Days are gone.
Now, Health Insurance has become Americans’ most worrisome issue.
Please see the “ Living Longer, Paying More, Getting Less ” article in my DROP Library about how Medicare will increasingly cost more, and cover less.
