Entitlements: Something’s Got to Give

Augh!  Obama has been hammering on Paul Ryan’s proposed budget cuts as cruel and unusual but I think economic collapse will be a lot crueller.  And believe me, it hits the elderly hardest.  When I was in the former Soviet Union, it was the old and infirm, who couldn’t go back to work and restart their careers, who suffered the most when their economic system collapsed.  If they didn’t have families to take care of them, they were out on the sidewalks selling their war medals.

Anyway, Heritage Foundation recently came up with a chart showing the direction things are heading in if left unchecked and it’s pretty scary.

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
