Stating The Obvious

It's interesting how sometimes a certain profundity follows from just stating the obvious. So it was with Paul Krugman's May 9 column in the New York Times.

Krugman is a frequent critic of George W. Bush's plan, such as it is, for saving Social Security. In his latest column he reminds us that Bush is pushing Americans to commit now to massive future benefit cuts. Why are these cuts necessary? Why, Krugman says, because if we don't agree to Bush's cuts, and the President's dire predictions for Social Security come to pass, then we'll be forced (in, oh, 35 years or so) to cut benefits.

Think about it.
