How to fight Tea Party's faux populism -


Specious crap. This is simply a political document. The Tea Parties have no interest in gutting Social Security or Medicare or repealing food safety laws or letting Wall Street rob us blind. What they DO is point out that people like Senator Brown have spent like drunken sailors, and the bar tab is coming due. Social Security will go broke without reform. So will Medicare. It's just fact. We can walk away from the fact or deny it or try to accuse others of fudging the truth, but when the Boomers retire, both entitlements are seriously screwed, and no amount of conversation about what is populism and what isn't will change the facts what, like Greece, we will simply not have the money.
