Anyone else remember Simpson-Bowles approach to handling our Deficit/National Debt situation(I would use the word CRISIS, but people would get crazy about that type of "language")?
Thought about that the other day as we drift randomly further and further away from "normalcy" of a Balanced Budget, away from Solvency, away from Sanity... WHY can't Leaders LEAD? Like, oh I don't know, make Real Decisions- Explain them- Do the Right Thing- and move on with LIFE?? NO ONE in Wash DC has the COURAGE to take on the 800 pound Gorilla in the Room(ENTITLEMENT REFORM) or even to Talk about it..
EVERYONE needs to recognize this- NOT DEALING WITH IT makes It Worse, MUCH Worse. and NO MATTER what we all Want to happen, the Simple Hard Truth is THIS- IT will End Very Badly, IF we Keep Ignoring It.
Here is a Recap Refresher-- Read It, Share with ALL!!
And YES- there is Actually ANOTHER Revised "Simpson Bowles 2" being Developed, but IF no one pays attention and our Leaders IGNORE the Obvious Problem that is VERY REAL & VERY DANGEROUS to our Economy and Future- then it won't be worth the paper it is printed on... LEADERSHIP WANTED... Soon. Now. ASAP. Please?
