    voters right about now, too.

    I did NOT give any money because I have an ailing, elderly Mother and aside from just being cautious, I suspected from Obama's statements that he was not strong on protecting Social Security and Medicare.  Still what I did not donate won't make up the difference if the chained CPI reduction estimates I've seen are even remotely accurate.  Not even close.

    Anyway, as far as I'm concerned Obama is currently attempting to give up the benefits that my Mother earned to a bunch of madmen who are only going to come back for more later.  More huckster than hero, imo.
