Steyn would have something to say about this

80 is the new 65 when it comes to retirement, survey says.

On the issue of Social Security there was an age divide. Those in their 60s expect Social Security to provide 46 percent of their retirement funding. But more than a quarter of Americans in their 20s and 30s expect no income at all from Social Security during their retirement.
Duh! There's a reason for this. Read After America. 

I recently read an article in the Cdn Reader's Digest called "60 is the new 20". It was written by a retiring civil servant, who was looking forward to a long, fun retirement, after having a cushy, easy, and pointless government job all his life. It was supposed to be funny, but after reading Steyn, the piece made my blood boil. Just who does that retiree think is paying for his well-padded retirement?
