It's called "filial responsibility." Apparently in 25 states your parents can come after you for your money if you don't help take care of them in their old age. These states are:
Alaska, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho,
Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi,
Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio,
Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah,
Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia
But the money quote is this right here:
"As recently as the 1950s, 45 states and the federal government had them
on the books. They began to erode during the New Deal, when the Social
Security Act passed and the concept of government rather than familial
responsibility started to take hold."
Ahhhh, replacing people with the loving and caring government.
This is why if you have liberal parents you should just tell them the government is there new children. The government is their all and everything. The government, the government, the government.
Oh well, you aging lefties who love government, you crazy cats try to enjoy that decline, ya hear?
