The new snowbelt

I'm stuck in the new snowbelt - the mid-Atlantic states - for the next couple of days, but I read this quote today and it eloquently sums up the state of our union.

"There's a fundamental disconnect between the level of benefits that people want the government to provide, particularly for older Americans, and the amount of resources that people want to send to Washington to pay for those benefits. To make the fiscal policies sustainable will require some resolution of that fundamental disconnect."

Douglas Elmendorf - Director of the CBO
