    That is their goal…keep it all for themselves…I mean, how would they pay for all of their homes, cars and vacations if they would give any of it to us….

    That’s what all governments do so well, tax & spend.

    When I graduated from high school in 1962, my husband and I owned a three bedroom two bath house and two cars within two years. Most of the men who graduated with my class had similar paying jobs right out of high school. I didn’t work, didn’t need to. Most women didn’t, and those that did actually chose to work. Today, it’s not a choice for most families, and when those families break up, everyone lives in poverty. When I did decide to go back to college, I paid $79 tuition for 15-18 hours of credit at SIU Edwardsville and we paid a $20 fee to rent whichever books we needed. Everyone could go to college, paying for it with a part time job. Since then American productivity and GNP have skyrocketed. But, Middle Class people don’t have anywhere near the advantages we did. All the money is going to the top 1-5% of earners. And, with the cost of college, it’s darn near impossible to get a start, you already owe the cost of a house before you graduate college. If the American worker is the most productive in the world, and all the stats say they are, the prospects for the young people of today should be better than they were for us. Instead, we produce the highest quality goods in the world—and can’t afford to buy them.

    We are broke, but there seems to be plenty of money for more wars and more money to aid and abet Illegal Aliens.

    When we first started accumulating a bit of money for retirement (a long time ago, I might add), we took advantage of tax deferment whenever possible. The pitch back then was “You will save the taxes on the money you put away, and when you draw it out at retirement, you will be in a much lower tax bracket so you will pay less in taxes!”
    .
    Right!

    @DLee4144

    The only ones the Pres. and Govmt. are helping to go to coll. and get housing as well as jobs, is anyone but Americans…they are the forgotten people in their own country….

    Ziggy and ‘politics’ don’t mesh. Leave it to Non Sequitor and Trudeau, Zig. They know how it’s done. This just raises the ire of every spoonfed TPublican paranoid in your readership… unless that’s the goal?

    My humble middle class ignorant reply to PRO is to observe that today’s Ziggy is not about politics but about survival. The cartoons you mentioned are for the people who have supported those who are doing well in this downward spiral of the American middle class retired.

    ‘for the people who have supported those who are doing well’? …

    Seriously?
