Here I am, a liberal Democrat who has worked hard all her life -- saved and invested. And now retired. And there are plenty more just like me.

If you can afford to be retired (if you're under 65), then you have so much more than most other people. That's not fair, even if you did it by your own efforts. You should have your taxes hiked considerably, a bigger chunk of your income taken from you and given to others to level the playing field. That's your take on things, isn't it? Oh, I forgot--that only applies to people who have worked hard but saved and invested more than you. Never mind.
