It has been reported in the news that after Chavez died on Tuesday, a woman in Caracas was quoted as saying through tears 'Who will take care of me now?" She honestly believes that at 27, her life is over because she has never been taught she should be responsible for herself. We are facing the same crisis. Much has been said that both parties know of the impeding debt debacle but continue to 'kick the can down the road' so that some other politician will have to teal with SS and Medicare financial failures. The problem has always been that current politicians always make promises that can't be kept, but the problem is always faced 20-30 years in the future. By 2030 or so the whole house of cards will collapse.
