I'm part of the new "get lost" generation of folks over 65 that many are complaining will financially destroy our fragile economy ("Aging out of health care?" Jan. 19).
I know that I'm old and that math has never been my strength, but writer Lisa Pevtzow used the figure $49 billion a year to describe the cost of Medicare coverage for the 45 million old folks of my generation.
Forty-nine billion dollars divided by 45 million people equals a little more than $1,080 per person. How can that possibly be the yearly cost?
