Many of these seniors are living on a finely balanced budget -- I know mine are -- and their small investment income has been all but wiped out, so I understand their fear. (I also understand there are ones with no financial worries - not applicable for my point).
I will do for my parents in any case; some won't do for theirs.
This is exactly why Obamacare must be ripped out, branch and root, before too many people come to government-mandated dependency. And why, going forward, perhaps during a rebuild, no government ANYWHERE may be permitted to "provide" ANYTHING that even looks like a "safety net". This is not charitable; it's a morally wrong two-fer, stealing from some to engender dependency in others, and no matter how good the original intentions are, there is always mission-creep.
Violating people's rights, and the Constitution, "just a little" is like the concept of being "just a little bit pregnant".
