I am 25 and listening to all the politicians talk about medicare/welfare and life lines to people and the elderly gets me wondering. In the future will i be punished for doing the right thing. For saving for retirement. means testing for SS is being talked about. I just have a feeling that the honest person who puts money away for retirement no matter how much they make is being viewed as the enemy. I just have this feeling that coming from talking to friends and people around me and asking then about the stock market and 401ks and more then 75% saying they don't have one and they can't afford it. Yet they are out with me at the bar which comes to at least $40 each after food and drinks at a nice place.

I can't begin to think that here is the next senior in 40 years that is crying about he paid into a system for 40 years and now we have to take care of him.
