200. That's a very big chunk.
How much when you add in all the payroll taxes, FICA, income etc? Where I come up with one third is that we're already getting close. Add in what people will have to pay for universal health care, plus the huge number of boomers retiring, then a few years later will be their astronomical end of life care. We've never had a society that spends so much money on the last few years of a persons life, and today's young workers will be asked to pay the tab. It won't be cheap.
