    Democrat in the House and Senate.  Remind them that 2014 is a midterm election and our base doesn't always show up in large droves like they do in Presidential elections.  But Senior Citizens show up for every election.  Tell them that Republicans are planning to attack them for cutting Social Security and Medicare.  That's the narrative we need to make here.  Win the Senior vote in 2014, the Republicans last reliable constituency, and reject cuts to Social Security and Medicare.  Lets drop the, "We're so fucked!" narrative and take that one up.  Remind Democrats that they need to hold strong on this and to remind them that Karl Rove will spend big with ads against them saying, "Obama and the Democrats cut Social Security".  Yes, it's a bind, I understand that.  But we have to try with this narrative.  Tell Democrats the upside of not voting for these cuts.  Get your relatives who rely on Social Security and Medicare to call their Dem reps.  Hell, get Senior Citizens out in droves protesting these cuts and we can help them organize.  That's what we have to do.
