Re: Medicare and Social Security

I don't hate you, Cybele, but you do seem to make a concerted effort to rub people here the wrong way with some regularity. Perhaps it's just a phase? A really long phase?

But just to clarify, I don't really agree with you, I just don't agree with the opposite extreme of what you're saying. Like with everything else, people need to educate themselves more so that they are able to look after their own investments. Though considering the likelihood of that happening for even a significant portion of the population is fairly remote, we do have to be realistic about the need for some safety net programs. So I'm a proponent of a healthy mix of the two--which I would venture to say is a stance that all but the most hardcore libertarians or socialists hold.
