Missing the Point

Interesting column from Robert Samuelson about Social Security and Medicare. Look, we know all know the programs need to be strengthened so everyone can afford to grow older. Samuelson is missing the full point. As both Matthew Ygleasias of the Atlantic and CBO Director Peter Orszag note, the growing cost of health care is the root of the problem. That's the real problem politicians need to start addressing.
