The parasites are the ones that believe they are entitled to the earnings of others just by existing or by being political cronies of the administration. The ones that have earned benefits and compensation either by paying into a fund or those, like the military, that have earned pensions and disability payments under contract as part of their compensation. The two need to be clearly separated--and this government is doing the best it can to confuse the two. BTW, the government would nave no problem at all paying its real obligations if it didn't throw money at those that didn't deserve it. In fact the government could even afford to throw money at some that didn't deserve it--just not at the level of the past decade.
