Learn About the 2% Solution
The long-term insolvency of the U.S. Social Security and Medicare programs is widely acknowledged and has been for over thirty years. The Congressional Budget Office openly describes U.S. Federal budget policy as being on “An Unsustainable Path”.
If one believes that assessment, as I do, then it is difficult not to conclude that rational, equitable Tax Reform is the most pressing challenge of our generation. But our Political Class exhibits no willingness or ability to address that challenge.
I have personally grappled with that challenge and have summarized my observations and recommendations in book form, as “A Citizen’s 2% Solution”, and in summary on the pages of this website. I urge you to familiarize yourself with those observations and recommendations.
But, more importantly, my objective with this website is to request you, My Fellow Citizens, to collectively join the conversation. Evaluate the issue for yourself. Find the flaws in my analysis – if there are flaws. Prepare your own analysis and conclusions. Then use that new knowledge and perspective to help address this critical challenge that faces our nation.
Please, help me drive a conversation and dialogue that can prod our leaders to find and pursue a New and Sustainable Path.
