Let's remember that the Boomers and the generation immediately preceding them are responsible for the immanent collapse of SS and Medicare because they did NOT have enough children to keep the system solvent. If the fertility rate had stayed at 3.6--where it was in 1963--we would still have a solvent and working program. But it dropped to 1.8 by 1976 and only stabilized for a while at 2.1. So we have to cut Boomer benefits by at least 25% immediately (yes, I am a Boomer who had 3 kids) and bribe the Millennials to have 3.6 kids in order to keep it going. Now what politician has the guts to say that?
