    should be proportionate. If he threatens to tamper with something as fundamental to core Democratic principles as SS he should be lambasted from here to eternity and back again.

    Now if he proposes putting a piddly bit of funding into something Democrats agree with in principle that is OK but the praise shouldn't be of the equivalent magnitude as the disgust at what he is doing to SS.

    It is all a matter of degree. $1 towards sustainable energy does not equal $1,000s out of Seniors bank accounts, no bankers in jail, extrajudicial assassinations or any of the other anti Democratic (let alone progressive or liberal) stuff that he is currently pulling.
