Re Jan. 7 George Will column, “We need a balanced-budget amendment more than ever”: It sounds good. But then neo-con Will quotes billionaire-owned American Enterprise Institution (Stink Tank) President Christopher LeMuth lamenting government helping people, preferring “wars and … territorial expansion … .” (Think $4 trillion illegal Iraq invasion that created ISIS, which Will loved.)
If we wanted to keep our Social Security/Medicare fund balanced, we would take away the rich folks’ exemption on all income above $120,000. (Sure George, you millionaires have it so much tougher than us regular working people.)
While Mr. Will declares himself an atheist, he and the American Enterprise Institution always seem to worship the God of Greed over the God of Mercy in which most of us believe.
