quote of the day

The status quo that Democrats are so desperately defending is this: an average benefit of that's a paltry $926 a month, $11,112 a year. Seventy years of New Deal largesse, and this is the best you can do for seniors with no other retirement savings? The opportunity to make life dramatically better through significantly higher Social Security benefits lies before us, and your "solution" is simply to postpone doom?

Fiscal realities aside, that's a choice that's morally indefensible.

Not to the Democrats, it's not. (Via here.)

No, what's morally indefensible are seniors failing to plan for their "Golden Years". If all they want is to suckle at the government teat they shouldn't bitch when the teat runs dry.

Democrats always defend or attack something which hardly exists. Their minds hardly exist. Even their fantasies are rudimentary. They wouldn't qualify as the Missing Link. I have exceeded my charity.

I know this is a crazy idea, but has anyone ever considered eliminating Medicare/Medicaid and shifting those benefits over to Social Security?
