I can tell you that I'm pretty close to having had enough of saving other people from their own choices. This kind of thing could influence my vote this time around.

If given a vote, would you support letting old people with insufficient savings starve to death or join the homeless on the streets?

Personally, I'd like to see a means test and a maximum benefit that is sufficient to live on but not any higher. Maybe $1000 a month. That would give almost anyone an incentive to save but hopefully cost a lot less.
