As far as paying tomorrow for today's benefits, that's what our children are for. There is no reason to do without when our kids can easily pay the bills later on. In fact, this concept needs to be carried on further.
People should be allowed to defer credit card payments and buy new cars using their kids as collateral. When the kids get to working age, the bills are assigned to them directly, and the payments will be taken from their paychecks. If necessary, the kids can be transferred to labor camps until the debt is worked off.
Using this method, the current generation can live like kings, and if the kids don't like it, well tough. They can't vote, so who cares what they think about it?
