When that 62 year old is 82 and collecting social security, the baby that he was paying maternity care for will be paying his social security. Argument was flawed from the beginning.
This attitude needs to spread far and wide in the US.
The "I'm an island" ideology is so obviously flawed that anyone should be able to see it.
There's a Greek proverb that goes something like 'society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they'll never sit in'
I especially liked the part where it mentions why one should pay salaries of politician they didn't vote.
I say take away all benefits and allowances and only pay median wage. Their increase should only be based on average annual wage increase of the general population. This way if they want to increase their pay they will have to work to increase the rest of the workers pay. Also no lobbying income

As an Iowan, fuck Rod Blum. Fun story, Rod was campaigning at my university and was at our homecoming parade. My tuba section has a tradition where we will surround a person a blare a loud note at them. Usually I underplay, because ear damage is a serious issue, but I blasted the fuck out of Rod. He still won his race, and is clearly still being awful, but hopefully he’s at least having a slightly more difficult time hearing things. Yes, I am well aware that this is a really petty comment, but he is just the worst.
Was the man born from a woman? Wouldn't he want his birth mother to have access to the best care possible?
