    programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid probably are responsible for much of the post-WWII economic growth. Adults who no longer had to worry about financially supporting aging parents were able to go out and build their own growing families, buying houses and cars and furniture and groceries, and sending their kids off to college.

    These cuts are going to put more of the burden back on the adult children...which means that they'll no longer have the money needed to "stimulate the economy", thus leading to further downturns.

    Now to try to end the wars we ask our gay and straight soldiers to fight. -- Chris Hayes
