All this 10-year things are BOGUS

the soviet style '10 yr plans' and fake trust funds allow a mere $4 Trillion *cut* over a decade, to cancel out a Trillion/yr in new debt ???

i picked the wrong lifetime to give up qualudes...

They have to pass a bill NOW to cut (retirement entitlement) benefits in 10 years or things will be so bad in 10 years that they will have to cut benefits (in 10 years)???

OK, sometimes its not the media, some times the GOP just argues stupid stuff.

The only reason to pass a bill now to cut benies in 10 years is
1) Fear that voters in 10 years wont go for it then (10 years) either so pass it now.
2) To take credit for deficit reduction without having to p...s voters off now , all gain no pain, cake now for me, slimfast later for you
3) The claim that some workers will be better prepared to work till 70 if they they are warned 15 years in advance.

#3 is fantasy too. Who bases their current retirements savings on future SS and medicare? I dont see the poor Korean gal at Haircutter who cuts my hair standing all day when she is 70. Or grocery checkers...ETC
