Gray Power Politics is the most recent American political development that represents the largest cross-cutting demographic sector transforming the fundamental base of political parties in the United States. The Gray Power segment now represents more than 25% of the voting population and more than 40% of the economy. This transformative segment will continue to grow for at least the next decade and will reshape political parties. From the backwater political committees currently in houses of Congress, Gray Power will surge into the most prominent political force with which to be reckoned.This book provides cutting edge facts and analysis with concomitant demands and requirements for satisfying the needs of the silvering citizens.Not only should this book be of interest to the powerful new demographic, but it must be read by politicians, those aspiring to public office, and those who are approaching their inexorable status as newcomers to the political profile. This book shatters myths of the aging population including Brookings Institution proof that we are the happiest people on the planet. Jeanne Sather stated, "More than half the people who ever lived to be 65 are alive today. The Gray Power interest group is projected to continue to become the dominant political group to at least 2060, as the population demographics of our country continue to evolve in our favor. We have not only the opportunity, but the obligation to get Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid solvent for the next 75 years to restore trust in the system by sealing it off from other programs being added and ensuring the fund is not raided by the government to pay other bills. Chapter Topics: The Gray Zone, Myths and Stereotypes, Vulnerabilities, Social Security, Health, Illegal Immigration, Security, Food Safety, and Changing the Senior Citizen Dialogue. All we have to do is unite to ignite our power base and force change through the voting process
