The question that should be asked of all deficit panel/commission/hawks is:
Do you advocate defaulting on the special Treasury bonds held by the Social Security Trust?
It dispenses with the smoke and mirrors of CPI angst, detaches Social Security from Medicare/Medicaid, and basically asks if people who paid into a retirement-insurance program should get their money back.


Glenn Reynolds, jokingly I hope, suggests that defaulting on treasury bonds would be one way to stop the government from borrowing any more money.
