It's a government's responsibility to provide financial support to old people after they retire orindividuals [A1]should save money for themselves. Discuss both views and give your opinion.
The increasing population of seniors poses a threat to many aspects of life. Some insist that it is responsible for government to offer financial aid to old people. But others hold the opinion thatthey [A2]must save money for themselves.
The ultimate purpose of government is to servehis [A3]citizens. Thus it's necessary for it to take care of elders. Since after being aged, they don't have enough energy to make living for themselves. Without financial resources, government is theonly [A4]one which old people can turn to and rely on to lead a cozy life. More than that, most people who get moneyfor [A5]government wereworkers and labor force[A6] previously. More or less they once made contributions to this society.Then [A7]it is government's obligation to repay such group of people.
Some people claim that individuals should save money for themselves. Otherwise, it will increase financial burden both on the government and tax payers. And such consequence is kind of unfair for those middle-aged workers who have to support their own family as well as pay a large amount of salaries to unknown old people.
As far as I am concerned, people should be encouraged to save money for their retirement life. Since we are the owners of our lives and we are decisive factors of our happiness. The pension you can get from the government is really limited and not sufficient enough to live carefreely. So it's not advisable for people to rely on the government totally. But government is still supposed to help those seniors who are in need in order to raise living standard and avoid some social tragedies from happening such as riots.[A8]
