& defeat it ye must, for only then can we begin to realize liberty & justice for all.

wsj online poll: cut social security

big surprise! more than 3 out of 4 wall street journal online readers favor cutting the social safety net!

well i won't take the bait by responding in kind. notice the dot i checked: no cuts at all! i could've checked "lower benefits for wealthy," but i'm a pragmatist, not a class warrior, believe it or not!

as i've said before, social security (and medicare) can be saved without cutting benefits or raising retirement age, and the payroll tax will end at the same time! (and, no, it won't bust the budget. quite the contrary.) the answer is so simple it will astound you! you'll say "why didn't i think of that?"

just wait! you'll see!
