Don's new book Rooseveltcare is very timely. Today we are
at a crossroads. America’s entitlement state is threatening to
bankrupt us, and new schemes such as ObamaCare are hastening the
collapse. What should we do?
In this provocative look at America before and after Social Security, Don Watkins argues that the answer is as simple as it is controversial: Abolish the entitlement state, starting with the retirement program that created it.
This is not another book for policy wonks about the financial trouble the entitlement state is in. This is the story of the role that Social Security has played in eroding the eagerness, energy and optimism that once defined America. And it is a guide for fighting back.
