For some reason, these ungrateful old folks keep voting in the same Republicans who threaten to cut programs which greatly benefit them and demean the party that actually wants to help them ("Keep your goddamn government hands off my Medicare!"). This would hugely reduce our deficit and show people that who you vote for has consequences.

To any older voters here who generally vote Republican, do you agree with me? I think it makes perfect sense.

People should work to earn their pay, not sit around on their butts.

But then people would have to volunteer to sit in Congress.

It's the Republican party that is against Social Security buddy, so yes, they should have no problem with it going away.

And I'm not on welfare thank you, I'm pretty well off without any government assistance, unlike many delusional Republican voters who benefit from government programs yet moan about the party who established them.
