Reality bites. From Harvard University’s Institute of Politics comes more dire news about what is ahead for America unless we get serious about reforming the massive dependency culture that’s been created. For example:

The news isn’t much better on the Social Security front: “Without reform, Social Security beneficiaries will face a 23 percent benefit cut in 2033. By 2087, beneficiaries will receive 28 percent less than calculated under the current benefit formula.”

Unfortunately, the Left is very successful at demonizing anyone who seeks to face this reality. Recall what happened to then President Bush when he proposed a tiny slice of reform. He was cast as having no heart. His reform were even opposed by some in his own party. So here we are nearly a decade later. The massive promises continue and the dependency culture continues to grow.
