<<The greatest problem I have with the Democratic party is I am being forced to support the people "who cannot support themselves".

It should be my choice and not the directive from some overpaid, socialistically bent, purveyor of "the greater good".

Worse than that, we are being forced to subsidize the well off middle class through very high payroll taxes for Social Security and Medicare.

At least there is an argument for paying a benefit to the indigent elderly, but not to the well off middle class. All that does is help build an ever expanding cruise ship industry.

The profligacy of the Democrats has paid out a stupendous treasure to the WWII generation through Social Security and Medicare, leaving these programs grossly underfunded for the 'boomer generation that will be flooding into them in upcoming decades. This will either cause benefits to be cut or taxes to soar a lot further on the backs of people who are working.

Unfortunately, the elderly lobby has primarily been a greedy and irresponsible raid on the pocket books of working people.
