Exactly, and I bought a house based on the fact that the person who buts it from me will get a mortgage deduction. Making the price I was willing to pay higher

People voted for politicians over decades based on 65 being retirement age

the list goes on and on and on and on and on

There was no contract so no promise, just a we intend.

Time for folks to understand that. You want some sacred thing in your mind to be sacrosanct yet others assumptions? Well they should have known better.
