I never expected such brilliance from the Republicans. Their proposed cuts to Medicare will solve the Social Security solvency problem, too.

With more limited access to health care, senior citizens will die sooner. This will lead to a lower demand for Social Security payments.

How brilliant, how visionary, how good for America.
