The first wave of Baby Boomers is facing retirement. They will rapidly form the largest "entitlement class" in the history of the country. Politicians who offer to increase the Boomers' benefits from baloney sandwiches to steak and lobster will get elected. Politicians who call for restraint will lose. This will set the pattern for the next twenty years.
Watch, it's coming to a Nanny State near you.
" This will set the pattern for the next twenty years. "
This country doesn't have 20 years!
