Robert Samuelson believes people are too dependent on the government for benefits like Social Security and Medicare, which makes it hard to implement change. But as Dean notes on Beat the Press, beneficiaries paid taxes during their working lifetime to cover the cost of these benefits. Of course beneficiaries will oppose changes to a program they're already invested in. Maybe fixing our broken health care system would take care of those deficits Samuelson is so worried about.
