The Battle to Save America's Middle Class

Elizabeth Warren

Alzheimer’s disease offers the perfect example of how foolish it is to shortchange investments in research. In 2016 alone, Americans spent $ 236 billion caring for people with Alzheimer’s. That’s $ 236 billion just for care: all that money didn’t delay the advance of the illness by a single day. And we will keep on spending these astronomical sums year after year; in fact, the amount will continue to grow, so much so that by 2050, Alzheimer’s could bankrupt Medicare.
