There aren't enough younger people to pay for all the medical and retirement benefits for longer living older folks

I'm 49, and 'we', the generations 
who 'strives' to leave our children better off as a result of our actions, didn't

And we voted ourselves benefits our kids 
don't/won't  have enough money to pay for

Ran into a recent college graduate 
whose student loan payments are going to be $270 per month

'We' sold them on far higher cost college educations 
which are not equating to high enough paying jobs
and they are stuck with debt
which prevents them from many discretionary purchases
with the little left over after sky high rents and school payments

It's sucking the vitality out of the economy

'We' betrayed our children
