Why you should worry about Social Security

A guy who really knows a bit about economics testified last week in front of a Senate committee about the costs of Junior's dreadful little war.
... The witnesses included the Nobel Prize-winning economist, Joseph Stiglitz (who believes the overall costs of the war — not just the cost to taxpayers — will reach $3 trillion), and Robert Hormats, vice chairman of Goldman Sachs International.
Both men talked about large opportunities lost because of the money poured into the war. “For a fraction of the cost of this war,” said Mr. Stiglitz, “we could have put Social Security on a sound footing for the next half-century or more.”

You can read the entire story here. Let's just go ahead and impeach the rat-faced frat boy and get him out of the way a little early. He's the worst president this poor country ever endured and should be impeached and, on his removal from office, tried for treason, found guilty, and dealt with appropriately as a traitor.
