Baby Boomers are taking us broke,
So politicians claim and that's a joke,
See Boomers were all born,
At the end of the big war,
So in the mid-1940's,
Baby births did soar,
Now at 62, they'll all file together,
And put the government into a dither,
The Social Security system will surely crash,
By 2020, we'll be out of cash,
However, the Boomer's are not,
To be shunned,
For taking a large chunk,
Out of the fund,
Political sins of the past,
Caused it all,
Constant dipping into the pot,
And poor planning has taken its toll.

We don't want to hear this but it is very real.

By the time I get to retirement age, first of all, I'll be 90 the way it keeps going up, and then they'll be no money to retire with (that's if I haven't died first). Scary to contemplate. Excellent write, Dana.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
