I posted this in a different thread, but then thought it may be standalone thread:
I just want one simple question answered by the Left among us - if we emulate Europe’s entitlement model, why will our outcome be different than that of Europe’s?
We had unsustainable entitlements before Obamacare that require immense reform (Social Security, Medicare). Left-wing, coastal Democrats decide to pile another (Affordable Care Act) unsustainable program on top of all the others. Now we have a fairly close approximation to Europe’s cradle-to-grave entitlement state.
Witness Europe. The entitlements and obligations are basically swallowing the Eurozone whole. Europe is on the brink of financial catastrophe. Painful austerity cuts have to take place. Disgruntled citizens are taking to the streets in anger. It’s a metldown - all caused by overcommitted, unsustainable entitlements that have finally come to roost.
So - what will spare the US the same as Europe’s? Why will our outcome be different?
I’ve never heard an answer to this question, and I’d like to hear one.
