    Screw the Boomers seems to be the new solution from both sides of the aisle....

    Anyone notice how taxes etc. proposed lately are being geared toward the huge demographic known as the Boomers who are now heading toward retirement.....?

    1. Cain's or anybody's Federal sales tax would target the huge group of Boomers heading into retirement where they will make less money....and thus pay less income tax....so a Federal Sales Tax would replace a lot of that lost income tax revenue....

    2. the "super committee" now in session is considering a new way to save money.....by ripping off the Boomers.....by creating a new confabulated "formula" that would lessen Social Security cost-of-living increases...

    New formula would reduce Social Security increases - Yahoo! News
