  •  This will be a set-up for a repeat in 2014. (7+ / 0-)

    Push through a plan which cuts future Social Security benefits and every Democrat who votes along with the president's plan will be challenged by Republicans claiming Dems are out to destroy SS & Medicare.  

    That they want to do worse won't matter.  The truth doesn't really matter, only the "truthiness."  

    Dems will suffer massive losses caused by more seniors defecting.  And who can honestly say that the seniors are voting against their own best interest?

    One party wants to privatize SS & Medicare.
    The other party wants to chop at them with a constant stream of cuts.  

    With no one "solving" the problem in ways that actually improve SS & Medicare benefits, it will be hard for a lot of people to see what difference it makes.

    This will be a disaster for Dems if this goes through.
