We're, as a nation, are almost 17 trillion in debt and running trillion + yearly deficits. We're broke! Given those numbers, who thinks there's still treasure left in the treasury?
The thing is the older generation(s) want what they "paid" in. It's gone! They expect the current and future generations to pay for them.
I don't want to pay. I want to pay for my future, my retirement but instead, I'm forced to pay taxes for promises made by politicians.
Let's be honest, the current and future workers will never have it as good as the current and past retirees. They set themselves up at expense of the future, but what do they care?
Death twitches my ear. "Live," he says, "I am coming."
Virgil, Minor Poems
Enjoy yourself. It's later than you think.
