Pension angst

January 27, 2012

I am so tired of boomers being blamed for everything.
Now, Prime Minister Stephen Harper talks about delaying the guaranteed income supplement for a couple of years.
Why do all politicians make it sound as if Boomers are just such a big problem?
Hello?
It’s our tax money that has kept you all afloat for the past four decades.
It’s our hard work and effort that has paid for the overly-generous benefits of people who are already retired.
Can you blame us for wanting the same thing?
Instead, what we get is this nonsense that there are too many of us, we’re getting too old, we are going to be too sick.
No, we’re not.
We are actually health conscious and in better shape than any generation before us.
The fact that successive governments squandered our tax money and didn’t save it for our retirement is hardly our fault.
So stop blaming us.
