Politicians seeking votes constantly pander to seniors like calling for higher social security benefits and various other tax breaks. Seniors vote; kids don’t get to vote. Spending on seniors is nearly 50% of the Federal Budget.
Something is wrong. Perhaps if we invested more in children, future seniors would have less need for government funds.
In any case, we seniors had our chance, we worked and made financial decisions and life choices for forty years or more. We have no right to keep taking more from younger generations and consuming more of America’s wealth, especially when that consumption means more federal debt and interest expenses.
