This chapter examines the future of policies on aging and the politics that affects them. It starts with an account of how the political context of policies on aging has changed over the years, before examining the challenges posed by the gaining of the Baby Boom for the future of Social Security, Medicate, and the financing of long-term care through Medicaid and other means, and various reform options for meeting these challenges. Finally, is considers whether the political behavior of other personal and the organizations that purport to represent them will make it impossible of very difficult to undertake such reforms.
