    That's the philosophy of both parties, and both parties' admins have left the people with less protection and opportunity than when they came in, and business with more protection and opportunity, since the Beatles. Remember there was important financial deregulation under Carter.

      Nor are any other programs for the low income and middle class.

      Medicare expenditures can be cut without cutting benefits.
