What's the Beef?

U.S. Comptroller General David Walker is going on a panic tour telling old people and young students that the people who are pre-retirement are going to bankrupt America until the end of time.

60 Minutes typically uses this scare tactic without any specific solution. Vague mentions are made about raising taxes and cutting spending, and "fundamentally" changing the health care system where Americans spend more, die sooner and are less insured than most of the rest of the world. I was only surprised that they didn't go to Canada and sing the praises of socialised medicine.

In the first month of my blog, I posted about what really needed to be done with Social Security. Looking at Bush's actions, I notice a tendancy toward sticking it to his critics. If you don't like Social Security reform, I'd blow up the debt with a drug plan. IF you want the war to end, I'll put in more troops. If you vote out his party, he fires all the scapegoats and lets everything go to hell.
