Response to Arizona Daily Star Editorial

Your editorial today,"Dems, GOP need to come together on payroll-tax cut".

I disagree.
Continuing to not fund the Social Security Trust Fund only hastens the day when the well runs dry. If only funding part of it is OK, why not go all the way and stop funding at all? No responsibility for the future, just please the electorate short term.
As to unemployment extension, quit doing it piecemeal, one extention after the other. If the intent to to provide income for not working and contributing to the general welfare then just extend it forever.
I am from the generation that was willing to sacrifice for the good of the country. The "me" generation rejects that concept and demands give aways. They have somehow concluded they deserve it. Since they get their way, I guess they are right.
