1. Well, the spin on "reforms" to SS/MA/MC will be ...

... that they "protect" the programs for beneficiaries"

So I'm sorry, I find this a bit less than reassuring. I want to hear "NO CUTS." And that means no raising the age of eligibility, either, for future beneficiaries. Raising the age IS a cut.

And to any who defend raising the retirement or MA age - which are already TOO HIGH - I want to see them breaking pavement on a road crew all day, or standing behind a cash register for eight hours. At even age fifty-five, forget at sixty-seven.
