Old People Vote

Another thing I used to be sanguine about, then got more panicky, but now am a bit more sanguine about is Social Security and Medicare. The Dems still haven't been very good at making these things part of their brand, because Fred Hiatt, but they're getting a bit better and the Republicans are starting to retreat.

The elderly are basically uninsurable and the current retirement crisis means a lot of them are going to experience the latter years of their lives in poverty. Promising them goodies would be a pretty smart thing to do.
