So tonight, I ask you to join me in creating a commission to examine the full impact of baby boom retirements on Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. This commission should include members of Congress of both parties, and offer bipartisan solutions. We need to put aside partisan politics and work together and get this problem solved.This is good for two reasons. First, it will highlight the demographic problems that Democrats have refused to acknowledge even as their costs increase and solutions become more difficult to implement. Second, it will address the full range of problems. Hopefully recognizing the full scope of the problem will lead to a more comprehensive solution.
Nutjob leftist Cindy Sheehan was arrested inside the Capitol, although her behavior was so predictable that she never should have been allowed in at all. Perhaps her sponsor, Rep. Lynn C. Woolsey (D-CA), should face an ethics investigation.
Like most Americans, I didn't bother to watch the Democrat/eyebrow response.
Afterwards, news reporters reported receiving press releases attacking the President's speech two hours before the speech began.
