Retirement Milestone


Today is my first day on Medicare. It’s no time for rejoicing.

This category of mandatory spending by the federal government garners renewed attention with each new congress. With Republicans having majorities in the House of Representative and Senate, it will continue to be under attack from conservatives and wing nuts. There is little comfort having made it to the next milestone on the road to full retirement.

As with any health insurance, one hopes never to have to use it.
