Too Many Old People?

UPDATE: To control health care costs, should we limit health care for those over 80? Read the Washington Post, A new approach to dying.

Are there too many old people? For the Soylent Green solution, read, How To Run America Like a Business: Get Rid Of All The Old People.

But consider "a less-modest proposal. The opposite of 'fewer old people' is 'more young people.' There's a straightforward way to make more young people, of course, but it's best that the federal government doesn't involve itself in it. Slightly less straightforward, but more proper for policymakers to consider, is allowing more young immigrants to come to America." Read The Washington Post, How to run America like a business.
