Retirement Savings Is a Bigger Crisis Than Health Care

Retirement Savings Is a Bigger Crisis Than Health CareEveryone talks about how health care is the biggest crisis facing retirees, but unfortunately that crisis takes a distant second to another, far more serious issue.

At the same moment that Donald Trump was condemning the suicide bomber in Manchester as an evil loser in life, he was adding to the chaos in which al-Qaeda and Isis have taken root and flourished.
