As congress goes to make cuts to the budget the AARP is running ads that we shouldn’t be cutting medicare and other elderly social services when looking at balancing the budget. Who do they think ran up this unsustainable debt? The same people they say shouldn’t have to take a pay cut. Their generation allowed the government to spend out of control and give freebees that we couldn’t afford. They have left the next generation with a country that was not as strong as when they found it.
I’m not suggesting that we throw our seniors to the wind, I am suggesting they should swallow the pill that they put together and take a cut like all of us they are leaving in debt.
