I am a little surprised that Mitt Romney choose one of the few politicians that has the guts to point out the badly broken entitlement programs and crazy debt path the U.S. is on and actually offer fiscal solutions to save them.
Paul Ryan will get ripped by some media trying to scare seniors by telling them they will lose their medicare and social security. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Ryan actually wants to SAVE Medicare and Social Security for future generations. Every other politician (republicans and democrats) has been kicking the can down the road afraid of losing votes if changes were made to these sacred entitlement programs.
I equate our country’s finances to a person running up credit card debt for years and not worrying about ever paying more than the minimum due (politician’s seldom worry about the size of the debt or the future cost of their promises) . It’s very unhealthy financially for our country and we need to change course. The day of reckoning is coming.
