Alan Simpson speaks truth to power

Quoting Fox News:
“Former Sen. Alan Simpson will keep his job on President Obama’s deficit panel despite pressure from advocacy groups worried about his comments comparing Social Security to ‘a milk cow with 310 million tits.’ ”
Quoting The (uber-Liberal) Washington Post
(emphasis mine):
The enormous sums committed to mandatory federal programs such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid dwarf all other aspects of the budget. Left unchecked for a decade or two, they will consume a larger share of the nation's GDP than all our federal programs today combined. Coupled with increasing interest payments on the government's rising debt, they will either force up taxes [on the middle class] or produce dangerous deficits.”
Look! We all know Dims treat their enormously destructive entitlement programs as if they were downright sacrosanct. Just ask Sharron Angle how badly Dim propagandists in the media will burn any politician who dares to touch that third rail of American politics. But, even the Leftist Washington Post KNOWS that the ONLY hope of even BEGINNING to reduce deficit spending is to target the big three entitlements (and repeal ObamaCare).

Alan Simpson spoke the freaking truth (and damn near got crucified for it).

Hang in there Alan! You are a patriot! I know it, law professor Ann Althouse knows it and so does law professor Stephen Bainbridge (along with millions more Americans).
