You don't believe that, do you?
Please tell me you don't believe that.
“You don’t think that tax increases will get us entitlement reform? You don’t believe that, do you?
Please tell me you don’t believe that.”
Don’t worry - I’m with you. Tax increases won’t do jack for entitlement reform, unless the reform is done first and signed off into law BEFORE the tax increases (and fat chance for that).
No, I’ve given up on entitlement reform because half of the older people, ON THIS SITE, are HELL-BENT on collecting what they see as “their money” and could care less what kind of debt that leaves my kids with. So, if half of people on the most conservative large-scale site in this country want THEIR MONEY without reservation, there absolutely NO WAY that entitlements could ever be reformed.
So I’m beyond that. Now I just want to find a way to pay them the money that THEY DEMAND real-time, instead of dumping it on my kids. My kids don’t deserve this treatment - they are just now getting old enough to vote - this mess was not due to them - so I don’t want them stuck with these debts.
So, I simply want US ALL to pay our bills TODAY, instead of borrowing trillions more. But yes, reform of entitlements is TOTALLY HOPELESS - the only hope for my kids is that they don’t keep getting debt stuck on their necks.
