    democrats use the GOP's demands for SS cuts to CRUSH them in the next election.  

    The problem until now is that every time the GOP demanded such cuts, Obama tried to compromise by offering lower cuts or other cuts to SS/Medicare.  Not this time, please!  Draw a line at SS cuts and use the GOP demands like a sledgehammer to fracture the GOP into an American government hating teabagger party and an old-white-fuck party.  

    To break the GOP, Dems don't even have to win the old-white-fuck vote, they just need them to stay home.  And like the government shutdown showdown, all dems have to do is nothing.  Nothing, as in, no compromises, no negotiation, no offers.  Give them no cover for forcing old people to eat catfood.  Tell them no, then crush them on election day.
