1. Social Security and Medicare are being called “entitlements” in the current “CLIFF” discussions. I am “entitled” to these due to me and my employers paying into these funds for decades.
The current talk is to make these seem like the Government is giving to us and not returning the funds as is the agreement. Again, I paid into these funds.
2. I would say 60 Minutes last night showed an area that can be corrected, what I would call “cramming” beds in hospitals and there are other areas that need correction.
