That really speaks volumes to our unsustainable socialist entitlement system that is becoming more of a weakness than the strength it was originally intended to be. Welfare, social security, and government pensions are only part of the root problem, that the US now owes more than it's economy generates in just one year.
Yeah, there's something wrong, but electing more of the same sort of politicians that keep supporting the programs that led us here will only push us over the precipice.
Keynesian economics have never worked well over the long term, evident by the disproportionate balance between government spending and our economy in the US today. This is why on this subject Libertarians and Austrian economists have always been correct, giving us sustainable methods for free markets and individual freedom over government.
Or we could just keep doing what we are doing and close our eyes when we take that dive to the bottom.
