    it is a beautiful thing. Many seniors are on the edge of poverty, many have already fallen off that cliff.

      it's difficult to balance on the old poverty line. Falling off the destitution threshold and scrambling back up over and over again wears us down and makes it hard to be cheerful for those hours greeting folks at Walmart. And shortens our, um, careers.

      Young people, you don't really want to have to support us yourselves, do you? Vote to increase our Social Security and you'll get at least a few more years to yourselves before Grumpy old Gramma a lovely old lady becomes a permanent fixture in your life.
