Medicare isn't the problem. It may be the solution.
"Entitlement reform" sounds like a noble endeavor. But it has little or nothing to do with reducing future budget deficits.
Taming future deficits requires three steps having nothing to do with entitlements: Limiting the growth of overall healthcare costs, cutting our bloated military, and ending corporate welfare (tax breaks and subsidies targeted to particular firms and industries).
Obsessing about "entitlement reform" only serves to distract us from these more important endeavors.
