  •  The "Automatic Spending Cuts" That Will Go Into (1+ / 0-)

    effect if the "super committee" fails to agree on budget cuts is completely bogus. Once the defense spending cuts kick in, everyone knows that Congressional Rethugs will try to pass legislation to undo the defense cuts, and filibuster any Democratic attempts to remove cuts from domestic welfare programs. That is also why Obama and the Super Committee Democrats should not, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, agree to ANY CUTS IN SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE, and MEDICAID. If they do, Democrats will be stuck with cuts to programs we want, and the Rethugs will cheat to get their fair share of cuts in the defense budget removed. Of course, Obama and the Dems NEVER should have agreed to this stupid "super committee" to begin with.
