We've probably already passed the point where we will no longer be able to pay our obligations to future entitlement recipients.
You're combining a bunch of different issues in to one. I agree there needs to be entitlement reform and tax reform. The idea that this is something unusual annoys me. Isn't this the role of government? Not like we make policy once and forget about it. Every government around the world deals with this.
Threatening the us with a default every few months over some archaic law seems a silly, and self defeating, way to deal with it.
