    in old age change,  we are going to continue to hear the bleating about needing to cut back on the old age programs.  Same old shit,  rich white males don't want those old women and people of color to collect so much of 'their' money.  Now, well to do older white males are doing better at surviving longer than less well to do and non-white males, and thanks to serious efforts to destroy research and healthcare for women,  women are losing ground in this country in longevity, so maybe someday soon, social security and medicare will be sacrosanct again.
