More than ten years ago while you were crawling around on your parents' floor over the holidays I had a conversation with my father as my daughter was doing likewise. He was prattling on about how he was owed Medicare, Social Security and all of these other benefits because he had paid into those programs and "deserved" them. I explained patiently to him that he had already voted to spend the money that he had paid in on other things, and it was gone.
What he was now insisting on was that the little girl crawling on his floor, his grand daughter, be literally enslaved to pay for that which he believed he was entitled to have despite his own personal support of and votes for spending those monies on other things.
That conversation did not end well.
