Now you know how we felt
My travel day last week was giving a little presentation at the National Press Club for the National Academy of Social Insurance. Everyone on the panel - including the conservative - agreed the the looming retirement crisis is fucked up and bullshit. Consensus was that increasing Social Security benefits was a nonstarter, so we must look elsewhere.
This is how we felt about Medicare for All. Obviously the superior policy, but a non-starter, so let us scurry into theh public option roach motel.
Well, better late than never. I am all for pushing increasing benefits and lowering the eligibility age. We need an issue to break the dam, this might be it.
