Listen to this opening paragraph from Reuters: Obama renews offer to cut social safety nets .
President Barack Obama raised anew the issue of cutting … Medicare and Social Security as a way out of damaging budget cuts, … as both sides in Washington tried to limit a fiscal crisis that may soon hit millions of Americans.
So they’re saying the way to limit a fiscal crisis that may soon hit millions of Americans is by implementing a fiscal crisis for millions of Americans.
Did I miss something? Are Social Security and Medicare just optional little programs to burn money?
It’s either them or me that’s insane.
