I have written this article in response to an article published in the Valley View on 9/29/18 written by Terry Kraus. In his article Kraus belittles entitlement programs even stating that he will give up his Medicare and social security if everyone else does.

Why wait for everyone else, Terry? No one forced you to take Medicare or social security. It is commendable that you have accumulated a retirement fund which prevents your need for social security funds. Itís even more impressive that you can afford $1,000 or more a month for health insurance accompanied by $10-$50 co-pays for health care provider visits (even more to hospitals, urgent care facilities, etc.) as well as the $5,000 per year annual out of pocket maximum. These are terms that you will be offered by insurance companies since you are age 66.
