Now, to blame the American people for the Medicare mess is unsavory. I have paid into Medicare for decades, supporting those who qualified for it while I didn't. Needless to say, like all insurance programs, Medicare is a ponzi scheme relying on those not needing the service to pay for those who do.
Why worry? The debt is someone else’s responsibility. Not mine. Rich people are bad. We should make them pay more. BTW, wheres my Obama money? And my free house and free gas?
The idea that Congress would not raid Social Security was absurd in the 1930s, is absurd today, and will be absurd a hundred years from now.
There are no trust funds, just slush funds.
