Besides promising themselves fat pensions that they refused to save money or tax themselves to pay for, the boomers let the country’s infrastructure run down. The next generation is already staggering under a rising tax burden, student loan debt, and retirees’ massive health care bills. On top of all this, they now have to pay through the nose just to keep the roads, bridges, and tunnels in good repair after years of neglect and deferred maintenance. Are the boomers just incompetent narcissists, or are they the worst generation in American history?I would say that they're mainly just ignorant, and that decades of bad policies from previous generations didn't help.
