The government will gladly consume itself. It will do so ignorantly and stupidly until there is no turning back. That is Greece. That will be the US if we don’t shackle the beast now.
New York has been duping Medicare. Medicare has been scared to say anything because they’ll be revealed for the fools they are. So the government is: (in NY) lying and cheating, and (in DC) stupid.
For the big government types out there: be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.
