My wish for the New Year....YES, it is related to economics...Don't judge me...

Food for thought as we pass into the New Year...
""On Jan. 1, 2011, the oldest Baby Boomers will turn 65. Every day for the next 19 years, about 10,000 more will cross that threshold. By 2030, when all Baby Boomers will have turned 65, fully 18% of the nation's population will be at least that age, according to Pew Research Center population projections. Today, just 13% of Americans are ages 65 and older.""Pew Research Center
New Year, same problem with long-run Social Security and Medicare sustainability...Is THIS the year these programs will be addressed with the seriousness they merit? That is my wish for the New Year---or to lose 25 pounds, whichever comes first.  They both face insurmoutable odds... :)
