You gonna pay for that?
The WashPost has an editorial today titled simply “Social Security” which promises to be the first in a series of “discussions” on our favorite entitlement program. Described as a “Social Security 101” review, today’s editorial ignores the elephant in the room – the program’s institutional insolvency – and focuses instead on what a swell deal it is for everybody. You would think an article that extols the benefits of a program would at least mention the cost in passing. An inauspicious start, IMO.
