This: One reason why ‘We the People’ are facing the current fiscal cliff crisis is because “we” have failed to protect our financial interest by allowing the government to give entitlements.
There is no more social security. It is now a pay-go system. The money was stolen/spent by the fools you people elected to Washington over the past 30 years. Now you fools say you paid in and should be able to collect. Sorry but you can only spend the same dollar once. It has already been spent. Now you have none. The boom generation chose that road with their voting choice.
I hope the youth of this country one day stand up and tell Washington they won't pay. They did not consent to being $54,000 dollars (each persons share of the debt and rapidly climbing) in debt to the federal government before they even finish high school or are even born. The youth face much higher taxes to the extent that they will be debt slaves (pay the majority of their income to taxes) for the majority of their lives. History tells us this won't end well.
Why should future generations be faced with having to wait longer to collect? Collect reduced amounts? Maybe means tested to see if there is a need? While being expected to pay in just as you did? Raise the age, means test, reduce the benefit...NOW!
