David Brooks - More Money Should Go to Young
David Brooks makes the point on Meet the Press that the country must have a conversation about budget cuts so educated choices can be made - and supported by the public.
...we're going to take money away from affluent seniors and we're going to direct it to young people who are learning the most. We're going to transfer money to those who we can really invest in. And that's the politically difficult thing. But the fact is, we have a redistribution machine sending money from the young to the old. We've got to reverse that.
In other words, we've got to get real about entitlements.
