    It's not just about protecting SS, Medicare, and Medicaid. It's about protecting programs like SNAP which are programs that prevent people from starving. It's about protecting everything that helps the helpless.

    This manufactured crisis may well end up hurting millions of people if it's allowed to continue to the desired outcome of the Fix the Debt, neoliberals, and consservatives--the Grand Bargain.

    What is so grand about cutting services for people who need those services to survive? Nothing at all. It's just a moniker slapped on the side of a rusted out dumptruck full of toxic waste that the oligarchs and plutocrats in DC can applaud and slap themselves on the back over at cocktail parties and on the Sunday Morning Talk Show Circuit.

    The Grand Bargain must be stopped at all costs to protect the 99%.
