Responsible Republicans must denounce the extremism that has overtaken their party. Unlike the forms of extremism that prominent people love to denounce, it comes from above, not below. It reflects the convictions of famous people in high positions rather than anonymous social-media users. And it poses a material threat to countless Americans.
I speak, of course, of the party’s wrongheaded attacks on Medicare and Social Security.
