    and that all this leaked information is just a sophisticated set of trial balloons so that PBO can say to Burner, "Hey!  My base won't let me do that, either.  So it's got to come off the table."

    It's just a symbolic issue for the GOTP, isn't it?  Just the first step down the slippery slope toward regaining the depths of the Gilded Age and shifting New Deal benefits to those who really deserve them -- the 1%.

    What haunts me is that the GOTP would be able to say truthfully that PBO and his fellow Dems cut SS & Medicare, not the GOTP.

    Can't tweet, so emailed PBO and my CongressCritter.  If it's a trial balloon, I'll play along and yell, "Hell, NO!."  If they're actually ready to sacrifice us, I want to go down screaming, "Hell, NO!"  That's not hysteria, that's a BOGO.

    Gulp.
