Things I think about...

My grandmother is 98. She has been living on my grandfather's pension for over 40 years. It has paid to keep a roof over her head, food on her table, kept her warm, kept her clothed, and put enough gas in her car so she could putter around and do errands. She was able to keep the house and do all of that after he died. On his pension. If she had had to rely upon social security it would be a /very/ different story.

40 years.
