Cheney Scolds Americans for Lack of Savings

``The American dream begins with saving money and that should begin on the very first day of work,'' Cheney told a conference here exploring how to encourage people to boost savings and be better prepared for retirement.

Too often, workers are living paycheck to paycheck and are not saving sufficiently, Cheney said.

This from the man who cleared $1,328,678 in the 2004 tax year.

Y'know... if I made $1,328,678, I'm sure I could save, oh, at least $8,678.

"Too often, workers are living paycheck to paycheck and are not saving sufficiently" -- He's right, of course. The problem is, they don't have any alternative. So what is the worthless putz doing about it, besides sending people and money overseas so he can make more money?
