Yeah Carol, we all know what the GOP means by "reform". They want to cut benefits, raise the retirement age and some of the more extreme right wingers want to privatize it and turn it over to Wall Street. Here's a better solution. Raise or even eliminate the income cap on SS wages. Then we could lower the retirement age and make more jobs available to younger workers.<quoted text>
Democrats can't even bring themselves to say the word "reform" when it comes to SS and Medicaid.
It might cost them votes.
But they all know neither program is sustainable.
It's just another can that's dented all to hell from being kicked it down the road to buy more time to blame Republicans.
What about Medicaid Carol? Do you think that if companies like Walmart and McDonalds actually provided their workers with adequate health insurance and a living wage the need for social safety net programs would down? We're paying for some of these companies profits by providing their employees the means to survive like Medicaid and SNAP because the bottom line is all people like the Walton family cares about.
