"There's just too many old people'

There're just too many old people. Why should we spend a bundle on keeping 'em alive when their most productive years are behind them. Besides, it's not like old people are an endangered species or anything; there's more of 'em all the time. Clear-eyed politicians like [Wally]Herger and Paul Ryan know how to cut the waste, and what could be more wasteful than indulging a lot of geriatrics with frills like pacemakers and aluminum walkers when, with a little benign neglect, we can hasten their meeting with their maker.
