A week ago I experienced something new to me—ageism. I commented on a friend’s Facebook discussion and another commenter went a bit off his rocker. Because I don’t agree with liberal government spending, this man attacked me because of my age. I suppose he had to do that because he had no idea how to support his beliefs with fact. He and others like him appear to buy into the government’s anti-boomer rhetoric. Government policy will be no friend to those of us who begin to retire over the next decade.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is a perfect example.
