If you don't address the fact that you're now paying for the extra 10 years, it goes away. Which is going to be much worse overall.

Corporations have been writing the laws for most areas of government and now we are seeing a complete takeover. Corporation and the financial sector don't like democracy. Democracy is for society. So we struggle because we let them in, thinking they somehow had our interests at heart. Basic but this is the problem.
