Aside from all the 'hot' issues that everyone is excited about these days....I sometimes wonder about how many Americans are going to hit retirement age totally broke. Think about how many people are now unemployed long-term with this skills going obsolete. They'll just never catch up.Then there's those who work, but sadly live check-to-check and literally can't pay for groceries or a light bill "until I get paid". Less and less are married.So when they hit age 70 they'll have nothing. Not even a small condo paid off. So what happens?They'll get $1500 a month in Social Security let's say. Tax that, they're left with $1250?Rent, lights, phone, water, food? I just forsee a generation that is totally and utterly screwed, and a visible poverty the likes that America hasn't seen before.
