Latest Yahoo Column: Social Security/Medicare

My latest Yahoo! column grew out of the Youth Entitlement Summit I attended a few weeks ago in DC. These are always sticky issues to talk about and some people think liberals & progressives shouldn't even bring them up, but I don't feel bound by that kind of movement-think. These are the most important and biggest social welfare programs we have, and if we, liberals and progressives, don't have the courage to discuss them, defend them, and fix them, then why bother advocating more social welfare programs such as a universal health care system?
