As is so often the case these days, Michael Ramirez sums up one of the great political problems of our era; click to enlarge:
Entitlements–Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid, the creation of “rights” without limits–are the worst idea that Congress ever came up with. Worse than the Kansas-Nebraska Act. Worse than the Smoot-Hawley tariff. Worse, even, than the NIRA. Pretty much everyone understands that entitlements are destroying the federal budget and will soon lead to the collapse of the dollar and perhaps the end of our republic. Still, hardly anyone seems willing to do anything serious to stop the runaway train. Or, in Ramirez’s version, car.
