To take 15% a year from a twenty something person while telling them that if they are responsible they will never qualify for any benefits 40 years later is unacceptable. It is penalizing being responsible and rewarding stupidity.

Can you think of any social program which doesn't penalize responsibility and reward stupidity (or irresponsibility) ?
