And, yes the guy who frittered away a lifetime earnings and is now destitute is a scumbag. A stupid, irresponsible scumbag.

But what are the choices? Let the improvident person starve in the street? Or raise the taxes on Gen-X so that Mr. Multi-Millionaire can get his $1700 a month?

Letting the destitute, irresponsible scumbag who frittered away his earnings to buy SUV's and McMansions starve to death sounds pretty good to me! At least if he expects people like me who have paid into the system since the age of 15 to pay for his retirement!
