I agree 100% about the solution’s being less government involvement. My point was that many seniors have abetted this march towards socialism by refusing to consider HOW the government will pay for endless entitlements. Many old Americans who are now afraid they won’t get pacesetters at age 100 were the same people who got hysterical when raising the age for SS benefits was ever raised.
I have paid into SS my entire working life by force. I am a few years away from Social Security. I understand that I will likely never see it.
The seniors in this country who have worked all their lives and by force had to pay into Social Security are DUE their payout. I do not begrudge them that at all and at age 65.
What I resent is government workers who retire at 50 and get full benefits at THAT age for the next 40 or 50 years at taxpayer expense. Let’s talk about the fairness of THAT.
