Security and Medicare are no longer the third rail of politics.
Politicians have found that the most vocal supporters of these
government programs are passing away and that there is a new set
of replacement elderly voters who are more open to other ways
of preparing for retirement-most often, that is investing in the
stock market. This change will affect where the politics of aging
in America will go."
- Fernando M. Torres-Gil, former assistant secretary
for aging, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in
his October lecture, "The Future of Aging: Challenges in Policy
and Practice," at the School of Social Service Administration.
