But then, as Clinton pointed out,none of the GOP economic message is about math, anymore than their social and educational and environmental messaging is about science, or any of their messaging is about morality.

THE MATH

Most who are reaching retirement age feel they are ENTITLED to SS and Medicare (me too)

SS and Medicare are broke

Most who are retiring cannot live without SS and Medicare

Most who are in their 30's and 40's are not saving enough for retirement

Those who are in their 30's and 40's are the ones who will be required to pay more into SS and Medicare to support it

That means they have less to save

Total that math up ......

We are screwed
