"



That is the problem, the masses voted for more handouts, stimulus, and door prizes. They want to tax the rich, thinking it will make things better. Yet they do not accept personal responsibility. I have seen a post from someone on here saying alot of people live on social security only, that is true, but how did it get to that point. Should they not have saved so they are not in that situation. I do not want to hear about hard times and struggles everyone goes through them. I just look at so many who needed that 70inch flat screen for two grand. When there is something to bail you out, you tend not to change your ways. So I can say it is a people problem, as evidenced by this last election :([/quote]

seems odd that, 8 years of republican rule in the white House unarguably caused the economic problem, and a Democrat, overwhelmingly elected to the office, is slowly turning the disaster around. and you blame the "repair guy" for the broken economy.

I said there are a lot of people that live on SS alone, I help out at our senior center every now & then. A lot in their 80s & up had a farm with their (usually) husband that usually dies first, they were lucky to even pay anything into the fund yet alone save for retirement. Even me in my mid 60s, if I hadn't gotten back into steady work in 94 I wouldn't have crap, low wage earners naturally pay little in & get little out, there were no 401s or the like back a few decades if your not making much you spend every dime to live. Before SS people mostly worked until they no longer could, then were a burden on their family or died. SS by the simple thought of providing some type of meager retirement income in turn opened up many jobs that otherwise would have never opened. What sense does it make to keep raising the retirement age when employment is low? There are even quite a few professions where there is an age limit, maybe if I sat on my butt in Congress for a couple months a year for a six digit salary + working into my 70s or 80s wouldn't be such a bad idea.

Let's not forget that after you sat on your butt in Congress for a couple months a year for that 6 digit salary, you would also qualify for a nice pension after a mear 5 years of service. ;)
