What is so surprising about this data. The country celebrates debt and interest payments and the baby boom has no concept of hard times.

Get yourself out of debt, stop paying interest and watch your savings grow quickly.

Spend tomorrows money today and you will have no money tomorrow.

You're fos.

What they pay every month or two for a home mortgage, was the greatest generations *full* price for their brand new homes.

Think about that for a second.

Dad said, gimme a bucks worth of regular and people jumped up to check his oil and clean his windshield...And spoke English...

The great generation had very secure jobs, worked 25 years or so and retired....on good pensions with good medical benefits....The private sector boomers have none of that. zip...

That great generation bought brand new homes, had secure jobs, and great medical benefits all on ONE income...one income....lol

Try that in today's America...You'd last about 2 weeks.

It's my opinion that "Great generation" had it made in the shade, and went thorough some of the best times in U.S. history...This isn't even debatable.

My folks bought a brand new home for what many boomers pay every two months in their freaking mortgage...And *both* are force to work into their 60s, 70s and beyond, as they work harder for less money each year...

Ya think things have become better and better each year for boomers in the past 25 years? Think again slick.

Oh yes we do. Lived on the streets many times; some of them when I didn’t own a car and had to sleep wherever I could; had no obey and food and remember the pangs of hunger, the feeling of freezing winter, hopeless with no place to go, having to wash my hair in the sinks of service station bathrooms and having jaegers hand dryer to dry my hair ...so you don’t know what you are talking about...: )

I’ve come a long way since then but Obama is heading me back in that direction and I’m trying o fight him but he keeps throwing irons in the fire...

BTW - I don’t owe anything but the mortgage and a small credit card bill that comes in every month that always paid off in full. Funds are still going down even after cutting corners in just about anyway I can. We just seem to live in a world where everyone now charges a premium price or the government foists a new tax, fee, or surcharge to keep draining our coffers lower and lower.

You might want to look into the data on life during the early boomer years, you evidently think that it was like your own, it wasn't.

You think in terms of indoor plumbing, refrigerators, TV, central heating, city water, no hunger, social programs, and so on.
