Its not just he Democrats - and anyone who thinks it is is being disingenuous.
Reagan proposed $3 in spending cuts for %1 increase in taxes. He got less that $1 in spending cuts - from a Republican congress lead by Sen Bob Dole.
Also - Social Security is NOT an entitlement and is totally solvent. Raise the age of retirement and the debt does not move one iota.
Its those GOPDEM politicians (phonetically sounds almost like what I wanted to say)
Tax cuts sound good and get votes
Getting Fed spending in their districts gets votes
Both sides have to move on this
BTW - I agree with raising the retirement age but for a different reason.
But politically? We've been starving the beast too long and it's appetite has grown too big
