  •  But it's hard to know exactly where the president (8+ / 0-)

    stands.
      Why doesn't he just come out and say it? Raising the Medicare age does not cut costs, and I will not make a deal that includes that provision.
       It's simple, and it would be popular and leave no room for doubt.
       Until we hear those words, or words to that effect, it's wise to raise our voices, and raise them loud against such an ill-advised, counterproductive change.

      And that's not insult, just an observation.

      There's such a thing as as keeping your cards close to your chest.

      The facts are these: Obama has not only protected SS and M/M, his policies have STRENGTHENED THEM, despite the fearmongering from the supposed left evertyime some dipshit floats a rumor of doom. Not a single penny has been cut even though we've been told over and over againt that we're doomed.

      This post is dedicated to myself, without whom, I'd be somebody else. Though I'd still be an asshole. My Music: [http://www.myspace.com/beetwasher]
