ObamaCare, Longevity and Beer

According to Master TrogloPundit it is predicted that by mid-century there will be six million centenarians running about. I am already half a century plus one but I suppose if I cut back on the tobacco and further increase my daily consumption of beer it is possible.

Still, should I fall and break my hip when I’m eighty, which is a given considering my penchant for breaking bones, under the new super duper ObamaCare I could be stuck living another twenty years without the soon to be rationed out of existence, entirely necessary, hip replacement.

I don’t see it happening. Longevity seems counter-intuitive under the Obama Doctrine. But, rather than being a pessimist, I'll mull it over while I have another beer.
