This is news? All that changed was the date. We have known this was comming.
The date changes. But the thing all parties have known but our
politicians refuse to acknowledge is... that the funds for all of these programs
are "unsustainable" in the long view.I remember this being
brought up in debates when Clinton was campaigning (remember Al Gore's
"Lock Box" come back)? It was known then that it was unsustainable.
The only question was the year it ran out. And today it's the same. The
only question is the date it runs out.Our politicians like to talk
about this when they are campaigning (because they know it gets the attention of
American Voters). But when they get in office (Republican or Democrat)... they
do nothing about it. They just keep spending and putting it on credit. That
may work for awhile, but eventually it colapses. Credit can help your family
get by for awhile, but puttig everything on credit is not a wise
long-range-plan. It's the same for our Government. They just HOPE the
colapse doesn't happen (during THIER administration).
and still the dems refuse to engage in any meaningful discussions concerning
entitlement reform. refuse. the real party of NO!!
Lost in DC: Don't know where you have been over the past year but the dems
are the only party to actually put entitlement reform on paper in a proposal and
that was done by President Obama. What have the repubs offered besides turning
SS over to wallstreet and medicare over to the insurance companies? You really
are lost wow. The ignorance and the lack of knowledge just blows us dems away.
Well I actually don't consider myself a dem more of independent, but how in
the world are any of us in the middle supposed to vote for the ignorance of the
republican party. Come on Repubs you can do so much better. So far in 2013 all
we have seen/heard is complaining. Where are the SOLUTIONS to the problems you
so often complain about?
ThinkagainRepubs made proposals, dems demagogued. Remember the dem ads
with Ryan shoving granny off the cliff?Repubs welcome the dialogue from
BO, but harry and schumer shut him down.Get your story straight.
