The good news is that Americans are living longer than they have previously.
The bad news is that our nation's financial and health-care systems are woefully unprepared for them.What's worse, neither presidential candidate seems to be giving it much thought.
U.S. Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama may spar over Social Security and tinker around the edges of entitlement programs Americans know best, but neither has a serious plan to stabilize our retirement foundation to provide a true safety net for the elderly.
