“Most of us have paid our dues to society all along”
No. That’s the problem boomers DIDN’T fully pay for the services that they expect to receive today.
How do you expect to get the services, particularly Medicare, when there isn’t the money to pay for them, becase boomers expect a free ride on their health care costs?
Medicare users are a primary cause of soaring healthcare costs of younger folks, through cost-shifting onto private health insurance that younger folks increasingly can no longer afford due to rapidly escalating premiums.
Just be honest about that before whining about someone trying to “drag (you) out of (your) wheelchair”
“Most of us weren’t hippie malcontents.”
Right; and we worked hard, kept our noses clean, and paid taxes to upkeep the grannies and grampas of these people who are now bashing us - for years, and through the nose.
Was this LBJ’s dream? Is it Obama’s dream? CLASS WARFARE and hatred? What a nightmare! - God, please grant me, at 66, to continue to be able to work and hard scrabble enough so my husband (69) and I, can survive. I know how to hard scrabble; but have seen how cross kids get when they don’t have “pizza” every day or have enough money to afford their silly “tats” and cell phones.
