They KNEW FULL WELL that their money was being spent as it came in, and then some. I can even remember, DECADES AGO, when I started working - everyone in my age group was saying that the money would not be there for them when they retired.

IOWs you are one of the "they." Funny how you like to disassociate yourself from 'them.'

... so that your generation can have its Winnebagos, just like the prior generation - I just don’t want the debt.

I don't want the debt either. I'm not living in any Winnebago. Assuming SS is still going nine years from now and I get my $65 dollars a month I won't be living in one then.

“Funny how you like to disassociate yourself from ‘them.’”

Not me...I’ve told my kids that they are EXPECTED to pay for their parents’ old age. We’ll work as long as we can, but the bottom-line is that we WILL NOT shove even more debt on the backs of strangers. They understand that is their obligation...and I feel sorry for those that didn’t bother getting that point across.
