war and money, I do declare, is that all you want to talk about?
I am soooo tired of talking about war and money.
If we do not learn from the past, we will keep making the same stupid mistakes
'Cuz honey badger don't give a (*)(*)(*)(*)?
Given I've been hearing predictions of doom for my entire life, why should I pay any further heed to them now?
After all, I can do the math. I know 80% of the deficit goes away if we just ... do nothing. If we take all the policies scheduled to expire and let them expire, the problem goes away. Doesn't seem like much of a crisis to me. If someone is worried about it, they should tell the GOP to stop deliberately making the deficit worse. The only way the deficit goes out of control is if the GOP deliberately sends it out of control with further tax cuts.
You haven't factored in the retirement of the baby boom generation. Seventy seven million people. Doing nothing means that they will swamp Social Security and Medicare. There isn't enough money on earth to pay for their needs because the money needed for their care was stolen from the trust funds and deposited in the general fund.
Do you have an answer for that? I don't think so. Baby boomers don't give a shxt.
