    wars is at the heart of our long-term deficit problem and they will be paid for in catfood by the elderly.

    I mean look who he is asking to pay down the deficit -- the elderly on fixed incomes.

      the disabled, all will have to help pay the tab for the out of control MIC spending, shared sacrifice and all that. A balanced approach - who can argue that logic?

        it is OK to cut the Social Security benefits for people with less than $15K in total income if in return you get some loop hole on some guy's private jet closed?  

        I mean how does that help the person who just got her COLA cut?  She's not going to get to rid on that private jet.

        There isn't any balance there.  That's a cruel lie.

          What is being discussed in DC is cruelty towards the poor and the disabled, and even more so, when the MIC spending is so out of control.

            And yes, paying for the MIC out of cuts in Social Security?  Hey stop defending me!  Just send me my full Social Security and Medicare and I'll buy one of those assault rifles to protect me from the Iranian invaders or whoever is supposed to be trying to kill me out here in the middle west.
