  •  It's not about deficits for the cat food kings; (5+ / 0-)

    it's about 'being serious' and 'making the hard choices' that will mean brutal suffering and crushing poverty for the working poor as they head into their 60s and 70s. While Erskine and Bowles enjoy their millions of dollars in swag from Conservative think tanks and Peterson 'fix the debt' scamsters.

    Just like the Republicans in Congress, it's not really about the deficit. Never was, never will be. If it was really about the deficit, we could all go home and start spending more stimulus money because the deficit is falling like a stone.

    But it's really about shitting all over poor people and elderly retirees, and calling it 'courage'.

    Moral pygmies, all of them.
