Generally speaking, a well-balanced retirement portfolio will consist of 35 percent stocks, 35 percent bonds, and 30 percent retweets of empty slogan-of-the-day hashtags from @BarackObama.
Suffice to say, a bit of mockery and criticism ensued:
@BarackObama RT if you agree that the middle-class has suffered because of President Obama's tax-and-spend policies

.@BarackObama Shouldn't be so hard, considering you can count the number of remaining middle-class Americans on one hand.

.@BarackObama do the elderly as they need more care not deserve to retire w/dignity? Yet U raid Medicare of $716Bill & blame Ryan instead?

The administration that has seen food stamp dependency continue to skyrocket on its watch while the median family income has dropped, all while Americans are falling shorter on retirement savings is going to help people retire with dignity? Unfortunately “dignity” might be a best case scenario, because it sounds like they’ve given up on the middle class retiring with money.
