For a hundred years socially minded Americans and politicians expanded social programs to make us a better society. As a nation we were rich enough to afford it, and progressives existed in both parties. We are no longer as rich as we were, and the programs already created WILL BANKRUPT OUR NATION. Even a fool can understand more money going out than coming in has only one outcome. Simply raise taxes? If you don't care to understand why we're not as wealthy as when we created all these massive programs, go ahead and see what happens. Countries spiraling down into economic collapse are well understood, and once they collapse the spending will end. It is not social insensitivity to try to limit spending to affordable limits.
