Old babies taking care of young babies

A TV commercial presently running stresses the need to keep Medicare payments flowing. Regarding the possibility of reducing government payouts, an elderly lady expresses panic and states “We didn’t prepare for this”.

She and the majority of her generation set up the current failing system and didn’t bother to do the math. They didn’t watch their “investment”. A generation misled themselves and believed their own lies.  They made promises to themselves that they can not now keep. Who was supposed to “prepare” them… the people from whom she now wants to take money so she can be supported with a lifestyle she believe she is entitled to?

Someone is going to suffer a lower standard of living… young or old?
