Though it is clear that the United States faces an untenable fiscal situation, needed changes have not yet been made. This is in part due to the fact that the policies are difficult and the politics complicated.

But it is also due to a narrative that has failed to tell the story of the many advantages of acting in advance of a fiscal crisis, and the toll such a crisis would have on every day Americans.
