If you're going to take advantage of the government's generous offer to exchange cold, hard cash for any seniors in your family (must be aged 65 and over to qualify), you've got until tomorrow to do so. That's when the acclaimed Cash for Codgers program expires.
The site explains the basic appeal of the program.
Each senior in your household (aged 65 or above) may be turned for a $4,500 instant cash reward at a conveniently located Senior Turn-In Center near you (seniors suffering from incontinence and other maladies may yield less, read the program details for complete offer information).
Any senior you exchange will be disposed of humanely, using an intravenous drip consisting of a saline, morphine, short-acting barbiturate and chemical paralytic solution. This saves the Social Security Administration and Medicare from spending between $40,000 to $80,000 for each, average end-of-life treatment.
In these tough economic times, what's better than solving the entitlement crisis and addressing senior health care issues simultaneously?
