The comment in this article about how Maori and Pasifika people have shorter life expectancies makes me feel very uncomfortable. So, the people who have been failed by the health care system because of their socioeconomic status would have the option of retiring earlier, so long as they agree to continue to have less support from the government than other people? Think that through for a minute.

This proposal is a way of further widening the gap between the rich and the poor. I hope it doesn't pass.
