***Didn’t you save anything during this thirty-year orgy of spending and speculation? If not then why not?***

I don’t know about Marty, but I was taxed to the limit and FICA’d into financial basics - while raising 4 children as a single parent. (NO, married and missed). My 401k’s dropped like droopy drawers and I am now taking out of SS what I and my employers were forced to “contribute to” for 50 years....so don’t get snippy with those of us who behave ethically and expected others to do the same.

As for the Boomers - they will soon become TEA party voters.

Any tea party type that also supports ‘paid into it entitlements’ which means, all entitlements, isn’t really a conservative.

It’s ‘I paid into a government program so dammit I’m going to collect’ thinking that is the heart of socialism. Social security and medicare and obamacare are all the same beast.

You’ll see people saying ‘I paid into obamacare and I deserve all the free treatment I can get’ talk by ‘convservatives’ within 10 years guaranteed.

You ignore all of the borrowing and spending done on your watch.
