Please stop referring to Soc. Sec. and Medicare as "entitlements".  These are things we have paid in to all our working lives.  Semantics will not change the FACT that we are owed our payments.  Why not address the real problem--that the representatives of our country changed the rules in the middle of the game by using the money we paid in for all the other things they wanted.  Such as huge raises for themselves and their own free health care.

In the "everything is relative" category, after a conversation with friends, I looked on Realtor.com, for a 2 BR, 2 BA condo/co-op in Manhattan, in a newer building. At the lower end of the price range, I only found 1 listing not in Harlem .. in the east 20s. The price was $1.195 million, with monthly maintenance fee of $2,500! So much for moving back from the suburbs to a trending urban setting!

It takes more than $1,100/month just to pay my property tax! Add in basic utilities & TV, medical insurance, and it's almost $2,100. That doesn't include homeowners or auto insurance, or food!

Where in the country are you thinking about that one can ilve for $1500 a month?  Does that assume a paid off house or something?
