  •  IMO, the goal of the past 30 plus years has not (8+ / 0-)

    been to shrink what govt spends but rather to grow it and redirect where those revenue streams flow to. Corporations use their politicians on both sides of the aisle, to introduce, approve, then build these social-economic dams. Social security is just one of the larger,  virtually untaped streams. Eventually, it will be completely privatized not because the republicans wanted it to be or that the democrats failed to protect it but rather, the Corporations needed it to be, to feed their growth.
