no, I hate to disagree but it really started with the "greatest generation" our parents who wanted everything the democratic party offered...........they started it, we were to busy making our lives to fully realize the danger inherant in the democratic utopian dream until recently.The baby boomers have racked up $15 trillion dollars in debts giving out other peoples' money. The younger generation is wise enough to call for it to stop because they will be paying for it.
I just don't think it is as simple as us vs. them.
We want it stopped to, believe it or not. But the SS is OUR money, bought and paid for by a corrupt govt rulled for decades by democrats who just couldnt stand seeing all that money we were banking just sitting there, so they just had to get their hands on it (johnson and the great society) to give to the bros and wlefare queens.
