      You're right, he's absolutely going to push through dramatic cuts to the social safety net, with the poorest and least powerful taking the harshest hits.

      That's just a basic statement of opinion. But it should focus all our attention on the need to reform the democratic party. We should target democratic senators and representatives who go along with this scam and we should be prepared to push back hard on President Obama's attempts to shield them all from primary challenges.

      He's definitely going to get his cuts, though.
      No doubt about it.
