“Old article, but as I’ve seen lots of OMG the Boomers start to retire this year... “
The media (on orders from whom?) are trying to divide us further. They are demonizing people who have worked and paid into SS but when it comes time to reap the rewards of their labor they are suddenly scumbag freeloaders. Many immature people here on FR are getting on the band wagon.
Yep, we agreed to high SS taxes to solve this problem, NOW WE are the ones STEALING the futures of the “Jugend”
These hard working people of whom you speak already spent the money they were supposedly saving for their retirement plus a lot more that they borrowed. There is no trust fund, just a huge debt. The question now is how much Americans of the future should suffer to support people who behaved so profligately in the past.
Some of the posts have just been stunning.
The oldies have the ‘socialism for me but not for thee’ thing down pat, that’s for sure. If you’re between jobs on fr, you’re a scumsucking parasite. If you’re over 65, you ‘paid into it and deserve the entitlements’.
That class warfare type thinking is *VERY* much evident on here by the older types.
If you cut Grandma's Social Security benefits, you are directly making life worse for the poor kids who live with her.
wasn't the "Great Society" a fine thing?
now 75% of black kids born are bastards
