if you retire after age 65 you do get medicare which is a national 
health insurance plan. so you don't need to factor that in so much. you 
do need to buy some extra plans to cover some gaps but they aren't that 

this is the screwed up mentality here. we have a decent national plan 
for over 65 and for military vets all run by our government. but a full 
plan for all is anethema. the pee tarty (sic :) cry "keep the government 
out of my medicare" which shows their ignorance and worse.
