Parody: ‘Live fast, die young’ bill hopes to save Social Security | Raw Replay
The real joke is on people who played by the rules for their entire adult lives and now find the ice cracking under their feet. People who bought a house and kept it, preserving the equity as "savings." People who signed up for 401K's etc and planned for their retirement. People who put money in the bank. People who were reasonable and responsible, and who now find themselves in financial jeopardy due to circumstances beyond their control, circumstances brought about by ruthless power-elites who are neither reasonable nor responsible.
Blame? A little bit of complaining about the Democrats goes a long way. They're not perfect, but they're still the lesser of two evils. Look at the numbers. Clinton presidency: raised the debt limit four times in eight years, a modern record for good stewardship, ended up with a budget surplus. George Bush? We all know what he accomplished, and now we're all paying for it.
So good luck with that equity, how much value has your home lost since 2008? 401K doing okay? Good luck with that. Dollar losing value got you down? That train hasn't even gotten rolling yet. So how's that retirement plan working out? Live Fast and Die Young, or Work Till You Die. God, I hate the Twenty-First Century.
