Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said, "Social Security has contributed not a single penny to the deficit. So we can talk about entitlements as long as you eliminate Social Security."
I wonder what is behind the Democratic commitment to avoiding reality at all costs. Is it raw stupidity or is it something more sinister? In Reid's case, it comes across as raw stupidity.
This shows that we should never allow politicians to be in charge of finance. Their brains are just not wired correctly.
