Graph of the Week
The average Medicare couple pays $109,000 into the program and gets $343,000 in benefits out, according to the Urban Institute. The American taxpayers have decided that they really enjoy free money. This unchecked free money is a huge long term threat to engineering, especially those that are involved in public infrastructure development (why do you think the Urban Institute tracks this!!).
Public infrastructure has historically been about us. The graph is about me.
