Of Budgets and Sacred Cows

Now that the drummed-up budget controversy is over, here are my thoughts for the next one. There can’t be any sacred cows, period. I’ve been reading about the financial problems with Social Security and Medicare since I was 10 & bored enough to get past Humor in Uniform in Reader’s Digest. Now it’s time to pay the piper for 35 years of mismanagement, the inevitable result of allowing the government to take our money and put it into a politically managed investment portfolio rather than in a rational, market-based one. The bottom line is it’s time to save the country for our kids.
