    But I have no problem with the wording as part of an expository "fairness" argument, which is what he's done here.  The polls show support for fairness, and Sanders addresses this by arguing how cuts in entitlements are unfair.  Of course, we do not want to see cuts in Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.  Period.  There are legitimate reasons for this -- and here's one of them.  Sanders is not necessarily citing fairness as the only reason.  But I agree, he needs to go further.

    Things work out best for those who make the best of the way things work out.
