Puzzled....I am fully aware of the subsidizing of
Medicare and Social Security. Having been born into
the silent generation (they should rename it the
lucky generation), I have benefited from being forced
into the Ponzi schemes just at the right time. I think
that any government entitlement is wrong and is a
burden on my grand children who are very likely to
receive less benefits. Not only do the working population
(both employees, the employers, and self employed)
contribute to Medicare and Social Security through their
payroll taxes, they also pay for a good portion of Medicare Part B through their income taxes. With
Obamacare, younger workers are being asked to share
a even greater burden. My mother, father, and one
sibling died without Medicare. Three siblings died
with Medicare. I and my two remaining siblings will
die with Medicare, so the result is the same.
The government cannot grant you immortality. Any
American citizen should be ashamed of the burdens
we are placing on future generations and the damage
that is being inflicted on our nation by the nanny
entitlement establishment. I can well remember when
being on welfare (we called it relief) was a shameful
stigma and I think it's time to regain that pride.
I'll close with a quote by the late Dan Cook "I wake
up each morning in mortal fear of getting what
I really deserve." That may not be word for word
but it's a good comment about entitlement.
