Not now that it is uncovered as being unsustainable and unfair at the most essential levels.

Well at least these issues are starting to gain attention. Just like the government redundant spending and waste
reported today. You can't fix a problem until you diagnose it first. I don't know about you folks, but I certainly could use some good news for a change. Good post.
