Outsourcing entitlement policy to the AARP...

They say that Democracy is the worst form of government except for all the others that have been tried, but I am beginning to wonder. Why can't we get the candidates to talk about the only problem that matters, the future? Robert Samuelson calls young voters "chumps," for trying to change the channel instead of facing up to the problem and demanding change--to our unfunded entitlements.
You're not hearing much of this in the campaign. One reason, frankly, is that you don't seem to care. Obama's your favorite candidate (by 64 percent to 33 percent among 18- to 29-year-olds, according to the latest Post-ABC News poll). But he's outsourced his position on these issues to AARP, the 40 million-member group for Americans 50 and over.
