Exactly. The reality is there is no way to keep paying the big federal and state pensions or to keep paying SS and Medicare unless we want to borrow 4 trillion dollars every year. We are at defaulting on the debt and having to do away with all of those things. There is NO money for more wars. There isn't even money to pay the baby boomers SS and Medicare. At least Santorum and Romney are being honest about it. Santorum said the other night in order to pay everyone 55 and older SS and Medicare, we would have to run up tons and tons of debt. Newt goes around and promises every state billions in new spending and promises everyone new programs and that he can pay everyone over 55 SS and Medicare and he wants a war in Cuba and Veneuzela and in Iran. He's so full of crap it is not even funny. He is insane is what he is. There is no more money and no way to continue to borrow money. The reality is about how are they going to get rid of the entitlements.
