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.
