    I don't see it. The Republicans have always liked tax cuts and being able to further undermine S.S. is all part of their wet dream. They have not agreed to taxing the wealthy to pay for this cut, which is what the Dems. propose and what would be in line with OWS. They have stated they will be willing to extend the payroll tax break by paying for it some other way, probably by gutting some other social program.
    How this qualifies as an OWS "victory" is beyond me.
    If they agree to increasing taxes on the wealthy to pay for it, then you can start claiming a win, until then it's just balloon juice.
