I was reading this article in Politico this morning.
There were like 3 pages of info about how entitlements were going to be cut, until I found this:
Democrats want most Medicare and other entitlement savings to kick in between 10 and 20 years from now, which will make some Republicans choke.
Meaning, we aren't cutting anything! Geez. I know how this works. In 10 years we'll decide not to cut. This is absurd and ridiculous. Entitlements are literally killing the country, and we are doing nothing about it. Nothing.
I think the media is doing the country a real disservice. Instead of being the Fourth Estate-the media has now become an encampment of the Socialist/Statist Democrat party. Pathetic.
Hey, I've got a great idea. Let's cut entitlement now, and raise taxes 10-20 years from now! I bet if the Republicans proposed this and it was seriously how it is was going to shake out, I wouldn't have to get like 3-4 pages into an article to see it.
