Over their lifetime it appears that baby boomers, Americans born from 1946 through 1964, have allowed their country to take on enormous debt that they will not repay; they have built bureaucracies that cost the public trillions; and they have not planned for retirement and will be the chief contributors to the collapse of Social Security and Medicare. They have acted like locusts having devoured all resources in their path and will use the money of future generations to pay for it.
