Nice teary eye bleeding heart series. yeah...let's just up SS by 50% so these folks can live a 'better life'.

She is buying a house.....probably bought at the wrong time...and hard to lose money in the DC area, too.....it's been going up and up and up...... and she worked 30 plus years at Howard University? Didn't they have a pension plan? And of course, she gets SS.....and since her husband died...the greater of his or her SS...plus Medicare......

Yeah..she might have to sell her house...which it seems she can't afford...probably one of those slick community organizers convinced her everyone should own a home and pay the big utility bills.....and taxes..wow..taxes in the DC area....big time!.....plus, of course a 10% income tax on working in the District of COlumbia on top of fed taxes.....

Yeah..she might not be able to buy into the retirement community.


SO?

My granddad worked.....worked in a movie theater..more to keep busy than for the money..... and the other granddad worked as a school crossing guard...got him out of the house twice a day.....made some spending change.....did that for 5 years before he died....so?

Retirement is not an 'entitlement'.
