It is ironic that the legacy that baby boomers would now bequeath is one in which almost the sole purpose of the federal government would be to care for their own consumption needs in retirement.

Yet it would come about under current law, under the Presidents proposals, and under many of the Republican and Democratic budget alternatives now being considered in Congress.
