WE HAVE HEARD THIS SONG BEFORE: TARO ASO SINGS THE OLD PEOPLE HAVE GOT TO GET A MOVE ON BLUES

BLAME IT ON THE OLD II 


TARO ASO 

Current Finance Minister & Deputy Prime Minister 
and former Prime Minister of Japan 

Photographed at age sixty-eight (2008) when he was quoted as saying

"I see people aged 67 or 68 at class reunions who 
dodder around and are constantly going to the doctor."  
And "Why should I have to pay for people who just 
eat and drink and make no effort?" 

Aso did not last long as Prime Minister.  Now back in the government,  
at age seventy-two, he has let it be known that the rising proportion of 
 the elderly in the Japanese population is a problem that 
"won't be solved unless you let them hurry up and die." 

As I said, we have heard this song before:  see here
