I don’t know what age group was polled, but my generation..the baby boomers...are generally greedy, dishonest, liberal Jack Asses.
Increase benefits? Good grief!
Since very few (national) Republicans have the guts to come out and say that SS and medicare are broke NOW and add to the national debt now (in fact Obama says holding out on debt limit threatens SS payments, so how easy must it be? ) the ‘just get mine’ attitude is looking attractive to me too.
After I am 55 Republicans will insist on excluding me from their ‘reform’ plans too, demanding that they 'keep their promises' to me too(Paul Ryan lingo), but not those a year younger than me .
I always saw it flawed to say that those over ~55 have to get 100% of theirs, but at the same time we must save the children (under 55) by telling them we cant afford theirs.
