Bill Clinton (!?!?!) Says Democrats Should Stop Fearmongering And Start Working To Fix Social Security And Medicare?

Bill Clinton (!?!?!) Says Democrats Should Stop Fearmongering And Start Working To Fix Social Security And Medicare?

The Republicans should seize upon what Bill Clinton said to Paul Ryan and repeat it over and over again until people who barely even follow politics are sick of hearing it yet again.

I think the Democrats are going to have to be willing to give up, maybe, some short-term political gain by whipping up fears on some of these things – if it’s a reasonable Social Security proposal, a reasonable Medicare proposal. We’ve got to deal with these things. You cannot have health care devour the economy.

Of course, what are the Democrats actually doing?

Going for short-term political gain by whipping up fears while they wait for health care to devour the economy.

That doesn’t mean that Clinton supports the Ryan plan. He specifically said that he doesn’t. But, what he is suggesting is that the Democrats should put looking out for the good of the country above purely partisan concerns, which is something Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi have proven completely unwilling to do. They’re all perfectly fine with the country going down in a fiery heap like the Hindenburg as long as they get to be captain up until the moment of the explosion. It’s a downright sociopathic approach to governance, but unfortunately, that’s what Republicans in DC have to deal with.
