Just Say “No” or Govern

March 24, 2017

The division within the GOP that killed the repeal of Obamacare is characterized as between those who want to say “No” and those who want to govern.

The members of the GOP who want to govern were in control of both houses of Congress in 2012 and did nothing to establish the groundwork for governing. To many, it appears, governing means being re-elected.

Those who are saying “No” are taking the longer view and argue that we do not want an expansion of Entitlements because the ones we have cannot be sustained. There will be hell to pay later, so why not tackle the problem now?

One of the reasons for continuing health care benefits established under Obamacare is the fact that President Donald Trump is a New Deal Democrat who pledged not to touch Entitlements. For the balance of the Trump Administration–and beyond–we travel a course toward a future collapse of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

Who’s to blame?

Everyone since 1935 who contributed to the growth of the administrative state and the government programs that require that we sacrifice younger generations to benefit older Americans.
