"By mid century the average family will have to fork over two thirds of it's income to the federal government, and upper income families will have to surrender more than 90%!"

There was a time, not long ago, when both Republicans and Democrats agreed that something had to be done about entitlement spending — especially spending on the elderly. But no longer.

Although he promised in his first run for the presidency to reform Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, Barack Obama seems increasingly unwilling to do any of that now.
