  •  If Their Long Con Had Succeeded (0+ / 0-)

    Imagine if they had successfully sold this con job in the 1980s or 1990s.

    Where would all those now younger than about 90, who were not "grandfathered" into Social Security be?  And would you want to bet that even their benefits would be oh-so-regretfully cut as "unsustainable"?

    Anyone who thinks this is just about old people doesn't understand the affects on middle class families who are sandwiched between the needs of older and younger relatives.  They get no help from family loans/gifts, inheritances and trust funds.

    Oh, but it's workers fault for not being "financially responsible" enough to build up wealth to pass on!

    Surprise, we live in a Left-Of-Center Nation! Act accordingly.
