Fund Your Utopia Without Me.™

Why Can't Progs Understand That Social Security And Medicare Are UNSUSTAINABLE In Their Present Forms?

Why can't Progs understand that Social Security and Medicare are UNSUSTAINABLE in their present forms - even Obama agrees - and something MUST be done? Further, why can they not understand that their utopian math of "tax-the-evil-rich + cut-defence-to-the-bone = problem solved" is fantastical, which smart Democrats, who have taken the time to actually study the issues and run the numbers, understand?

Grow up, already. I am perfectly willing to have a future where Medicare and Social Security are no longer in existence because they were breaking the government's bank. I'm even willing -- once Obama leaves the White House and I can end my capital/professional strike -- to return to work and pay for your Social Security and Medicare without complaint.

What I am not willing to do is to allow you to continue sticking your heads in the sand and your fingers in your ears while screaming "La la la la, I can't hear you!" and demand the status quo or even more as the collective country is on a runaway train heading off the cliff.

I will pay for your SS/MC, but you are going to have to accept some changes (Why are Progressives so afraid of change?) so that you don't take the whole damn country down with your selfishness.
