    ...government spending as "less than ideal." "Less than optimal."

    We all know those regular commenters who hide behind their superior knowledge of best accounting practices, "original intent of Social Security" and other suppositions intended to justify eroding the Safety Net as logically inevitable.

    To ANY society.
