Blog Update

With my formal book tour over and the press of other commitments, I won't have time for now to do much blogging (as many of you have already noticed and pointed out!). However I do expect to be doing regular columns for The Daily Beast, and contributing op-ed columns as well to The Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, and other such outlets. If you're interested in following this work please do sign up for the email list on the site -- I'll be sending out new pieces as they appear. Many thanks for your interest.

You should look into the mirror because your ideas are dead. For years you've advocated for cuts in "entitlements" without telling the American people the truth about the U.S. Budget.

If you want "live" ideas then you needs to tell people the TRUTH about the budget and Social Security has contributed NOTHING to the debt and deficit of the United States.

Matt:
Long time listener of "Left, Right & Center". I enjoyed your appearance on Bill Maher last night. As always, you were a voice of reason. Is it that the left is still fighting the last war, unwilling to accept the responsibility of victory? And the right, flailing as usual, is looking for the means to continue using race as its organizing principle? Please keep reminding us that his name is Barry, not Harry: he practices the art of politics, not the Black Arts.

I kinda wish you still updated your blog to include links to other sites in which you have written articles and perhaps to include links to articles that you find interesting. I, for one, am fascinated by your ideas and would like to keep up with your thoughts beyond "Left, Right, & Center".

Deadbeat,

You want the truth about "entitlements"? The truth is that today "entitlements" are consuming almost 65% of all government spending and if not reformed will soon be unfunded because the baby boomers are rapidly adding to the payroll of these programs. Once these programs are unfunded, there are only three options: 1. Raise taxes to pay for them. 2. Decrease government spending by cutting other programs to pay for them or 3. Increase the deficit pay for them. The longer we wait to reform these programs, the more expensive and politically difficult it will be. Adding entitlements like ObamaCare will only accelerate this process because it will eat up more and more of the total government spending. You can see the data
