    The approach to entitlement spending? Changing the approach is not going to cut costs of either SS or Medicare. Changing the levels of benefits and/or when people can begin collecting those benefits is the only way to reduce the costs of either program. You can't just wish the costs will reduce themselves.

    Of course, the main reason these two programs have not been properly addressed at any time in the past is that it tends to be political suicide. It's about time our reps step up to the plate and address these issues honestly.
