You might be able to blame some of the seniors for their own poverty, but you cannot blame 25% of them for their current situations. Capitalism thrives on the poor. Capitalism rewards the rich few because it impoverishes a very large number of the rest of us. A strong middle class requires that everyone is middle class as far as earnings go.
