  •  Ed Schultz was wondering last night if this was a (5+ / 0-)

    ploy by Obama (SS on the table) knowing Boehner wouldn't take the offer anyway.  It sounded to me like our side trying to make excuses for some shocking behavior from our recently re-elected President.  

    SS and Medicare should never be on the table.  Remove the cap.  Wouldn't that be a simple solution?  Probably for both programs, actually.

    I wrote the White House, yet again (they're going to sic the secret service on me yet) and told them how it sickened me that we always have to take care of the rich on the backs of the poor and elderly.  SS isn't a windfall profit for seniors by any stretch.  I said it the other day, and will again, my Mom's SS is my Dad's and amounts to about $1200 a month.  We have a client whose SS is so small he qualifies for food stamps.  Yeah, those seniors, living high off the hog.  The Republicans are trying to take what very little seniors have away from them.  Have been for years.  That should be repugnant to anyone with even a tiny shred of common decency.  

    It's time we say enough to these stingy, selfish, heartless, terrorizing, immature assholes.  Way past time, actually.  Just like the NRA, they're only powerful because we give them the power.  Time to take it away.
