Easy to say when you've paid the lower rates all your life and will pay little or none at the higher rates you're asking kids and grandkids to pay on top of their already watered down economic expectations for younger generations compared to today's older generations.

We need to stop the generational warfare here and accept that sacrifice must be shared. If younger generations should expect to get screwed by reforms, so too should wealthier SS and Medicare beneficiaries. We all need to be in this together, not expect other people to suffer for our own benefit while we sacrifice little or nothing ourselves.
