All civil conversations need to begin in honesty, and when they do not someone needs to take them there (ahem, the moderator). To begin with the premise that facts are what we must focus on and then to establish that Medicare and Social Security are the two major reasons for our nation's debt death spiral, was a supreme act of dishonesty. Social Security has NOTHING to do with our debt. That's a fact. Then, speakiing of entitlements, Krista why did you allow entitlements to Big Oil, Wall Street, Agribusiness, The Pentagon, and Big Pharma to be off limits? Twelve years ago this country was on track to be debt-free in short order. What changed? Well, it was not merely Medicare and Social Security obligations. I agree with one writer, this program should not have been aired. It did more harm than good.
