Solutions for ‘unsustainable’ programs?
The Seattle Times editorial said that we must consider cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security because the aging of the population has made these programs unsustainable [“Avoid sequester gimmick,” Opinion, Feb. 22].
My question is: And what? We just let them die? Let them starve and turn them away from our doctors? A civilized society doesn’t do that.
It is absolutely idiotic the way long lists of solutions to our economic woes involve making us poorer. Hello. Anybody home?
