    With all the excellent possibilities of health care during this time, seniors are living longer than ever before. We are still valuable citizens. Seniors these days would like to make it to age 100. I am 72 years old. I have lived longer than all of my preceding relatives. This is because of good health care. However, at this age, we seniors simply do not have the dollars available to pay the high cost of medical care. Most of us already carry a supplement to our Medicare. We aren’t getting that for free. We PAY for it.
