View Diary: Super Congress is a plan for deadlock, just like Simpson-Bowles (57 comments)

  •  Deadlock?? (0+ / 0-)

    I think it's more than fair to say that the Cat Food Comm may have failed to produce a report in-line with its charter but that the views of Purina & Iams that won the day - then and on Tuesday as well.

    The very fact of Cat Food I telegraphed to the GOP that Obama was primed for a take-down on safety net programs using the debt as leverage.

    For example, how many times did the President publicly remind either Purina (Simpson) or Iams (Boles) that SocSec was beyond the purview of the Commission he established and chartered.

    If you said >1, you're correct.

    Let's hope Cat Food II isn't as "deadlocked" as Cat Food I.
