If you haven't figured out how to float an idea from folks - then that is just sad. If you don't know how to push back from a floated idea is equally sad.
A recent CBO report indicates that increasing age for Medicare Enrollment is not the big winner that had been floated. Social Security is not an immediate problem.
As I posted elsewhere the tax system is broken and neither political party has a workable solution. Rather than getting everyone's tidy whites in a bunch - the best article I've read is this....read it, think about, don't knee-jerk a "whine reaction" http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2013/10/26/marty-sullivan-figured-out-how-the-worlds-biggest-companies-avoided-billions-in-taxes-heres-how-he-wants-to-stop-them/?tid=rssfeed In Response to Re: BERNIE SANDERS = SENIOR'S ADVOCATE:
I guess Senator Sanders hasn't gotten the word from the WH Hilltop:
The President has voiced his views in the last several years on where he stands on this issue and others that are linked to his vision.
He wants stimulus and he sees entitlement reform as a bargaining chip for the good of the overall economic healthof the nation. He also knows that SS ( OAS & DI) and Medicare have to have some reform for the long term health of the programs.
I believe that he understands what peril it might cause if he doesn't consider reform as well as his vision for an economic stimulus for the long term. He also knows that he cannot fix SS nor Medicare on the back of US employment.
