    the republicans just now figured they can use in the mix of scheduled government showdowns, with their ultimate aim being to bring down every successful social program since the New Deal.

    Let them touch even the fringe of Social Security and they'll demand a seam, them a panel of material, until all the fabric is gone. They've discovered that if they can't win big, then incremental may well get it done, and get it done more completely.

    Meanwhile the rest of us are still appalled at their mendacity and seeming stupidity. Their barely hidden contempt for women and minorities (there are less civil words I considered using) also is off putting enough, we don't look too closely at their long term motives, which color all their short term strategies, except when they forget what century they're living in...
