  •  Simpson recently said no one knew about boomers (7+ / 0-)

    when Grenspan's "Grand Compromise" passed in 1983.  By 1986, he said, as quoted above, that the boomers were going to drag the system down.  People didn't know about the likely impact of boomers on the SS system in 1983, but he figured out the problem 3 years later.  Maybe he plays 11-sided chess.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?
