Yesterday, the Washington Post confirmed what many Americans already suspected: Democrats are more focused on electoral politics than working to develop solutions to America’s unsustainable deficit spending. Here are the facts:
Fact: Unless Congress acts, America will hit its debt limit and possibly default in as little as three weeks.
Fact: Health care spending is a major driver of the nation’s deficit and debt.
Fact: Obama Administration officials predict Medicare will go bankrupt in a few short years.
Fact: Leading Democrats seem more interested in staking out positions to advance their political standing than working to solve these critical issues.
As one Democrat source said in a refreshing moment of candor: “We should be very careful about giving away the biggest advantage we’ve had as Democrats in some time.”
