Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

Greenspan to Congress: Rein in Geezer Subsidies
by Bonjo
"I fear that we may have already committed more physical resources to the baby boom generation in its retirement years than our economy has the capacity to deliver.

"If existing promises need to be changed, those changes should be made sooner rather than later."

Greenspan also said that adding personal accounts to Social Security would help raise overall savings in the country, a step needed for a healthy economy. "The reason is that money allocated to the personal accounts would no longer be available to fund other government activities," he said.
Translation: Not only are personal accounts going to save the government billions of dollars, and help ensure that my retirement benefits are still around when I retire, the savings plans keeps [some] money out of governmental programs.

Greenspan's point? Get to work, suck it up, and do what needs to be done. Now.

Greenspan also waved a finger at governmental spending, telling congress that the deficits have to be brought under control. Perhaps those on the left whining about Bush's budget cuts will take note, but we shouldn't hold our breath.
