Unemployment insurance, welfare, social security, deficit, debt. Am I the only person in the country who is confused by the current debate on the social safety net and the related issue of public debt? Am I the only person who feels that no party to the debate can be entirely trusted, that everyone has their own axe to grind - whether it be the right, the left, the government, or the opposition? Though I don't claim to know the "truth" about these issues, I may be able to offer some clues as to what's wrong with the debate itself
