'For the Sake of the Children,' Let Social Security Die

Does anyone really believe that we can tax ourselves back to solvency? In a couple weeks, Paul Ryan will submit his proposals for "saving" Social Security and Medicare, the real question in my mind is whether or not they should be saved. We seemed to survive as a nation just fine in the 154 years before Social Security and in fact we had a lot more choices for Senior Care and a lot more charitable sources of health Care in the 188 years before Medicare/Medicaid. Does it make sence to save programs that have gone bankrupt in less than a quarter of the time this country has been in existence? A bad idea is just that .....a bad idea!
