Quote of the Day

James Marple, senior economist with TD Bank, via Crooks and Liars:

Imagine Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid in a box. Surrounding the box are progressives, Democrats, and yes, even the President, locked in a protective stance. Surrounding those people are a bunch of wild-eyed lunatics with stones and weapons, looking for every possible way to break that lock and loot the box. That’s where we are right now.

  1. Been this way for a while. Bush tried, unsuccessfully, to loot the box. Thank you Josh.

    Obama is scary. He uses the box, very cavalierly, as a political bargaining chip. I’ll be very, very nice and only say I don’t like that.

  2. I’m afraid what we will see in the end is some form of watering down of the federal debt to Social Security while defense spending and our wars and other such items which are fully debt funded won’t be touched.

    That has been the tone so far and none of those at the top of the heap are making noises any different than that.

    If it goes down this way, this country and democracy and freedom are toast.

    Hopefully, surrounding the wild-eyed lunatics are a bunch of folks with pitchforks to let those closest to the box know they’ve got their back.
