    The same criticisms that you make on the reality of Social Security/Medicare reform?

    Mitt Romney made them during the campaign. That's right. The left was helped by the freakout crew suppressing their ill-informed blather during the campaign about the $716 billion. Now that the campaign is over, it's still ill-informed blather.

    Reform consists of savings made through boring stuff like replacing fee-for-service. The conservative press trope is that reform==cut.

    Do not T&R

      Obama said "cut" and "Medicare" in the same sentence! Can't you see that he's going to sell us all out to the wealthy?!

      Austerity was horrible for Europe. Mitt Romney was right. Obama wants us to go the way of Greece!

      •  Maybe not Greece, but yes some cutting. (1+ / 0-)

        Unnecessary cutting.

        The entire debate is about punishing innocent people.

        Why do I have to endure any ill effects? I wasant responsible for the 08 meltdown. Nor were my fellow middle class earners. Nor were poor people responsible.

        Its like theres some bizarre form of religious guilt that sweeps the nations citizens, where we feel the only way to address an issue is to exact pain upon ourselves, thereby earning gawds graciousness and quelling his wrath.

        We lack the ability to connect dots and understand who benefits from this national self-hate frenzy.

        Debt abd Deficit excuses were borne from the failed economic policies of the gwb administration.

      After all there is talk of raising the medicare eligibility age to 67 but an informed person would know that and move on from the election which is over.

      Everything i referenced is in the memo from Bob Woodward. I'm very sorry you can't stop thinking about Romney, but you need to read information and move on.

      I don't negotiate grand bargains with deficit terrorists!
