Leaders Among Us: "Leaders Among Us
By Peter Heck
The time for pretense has passed. As a nation, we are on the cusp of an economic cataclysm if immediate steps are not taken to correct our unbalanced national checkbook. As our debt already spirals out of control, the specter of the unfunded liabilities of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, looms ominously on the horizon. When the retirement of the baby boom generation hits with blunt force, our economic state will be in shambles and our country will default.

These problems do not appear lost on President Obama. Congratulating himself for bringing us out of a recession, he has touted a new era of fiscal sobriety. But after telling Tea Party Americans that he was going to 'call their bluff' and propose 'difficult choices' to get our runaway deficits under control, what did the president offer in terms of a budget? He put forth a plan that would see the federal government borrow more money in his four years than under the previous 43 presidents combined. And what tough choices did he recommend to rectify the massive unfunded liabilities that are preparing to devour our economy? None."
