A couple of responses to your idiotic post: Seniors paid into Social Sec. & medicare for years, as you are doing. It is owed to them, and will be owed to you when you retire. Second, low int. rates are doing very little to help the economy, beyoond housing. Banks are still not lending. low rates hurt saver incomes, young as well as old. STOP BASHING RETIRED PEOPLE--MY PARENTS NEED SOCIAL SEC!
