>> But I think the majority of the blame goes to the individuals who failed to accept responsibility for their own finances. <<

Maybe. But what stinks about this is that I think the government will make sure that all those guaranteed pensions by their employers will be made whole, and future generations (who mostly won't HAVE pensions) will be the ones to pay for the retirement security of their ancestors. And that will make it that much harder for them to retire.

The older generations are really lucky that young people don't bother to vote.
