    President Obama didn't listen to Krugman for four years, he's not going to listen to him now.  The "Grand Bargain" in the shape of Simpson-Bowles is coming before the end of 2012.  To think otherwise is not dealing in reality.  The only way to derail this train, ironically enough, is for the Republicans to obstruct again.  I have a feeling that since President Obama is now a lame duck himself, the Republicans will accept a deal that hands Social Security and Medicare as an issue to the Republicans for the foreseeable future.  It wasn't that long ago (2010) that the Republicans used that ACA  $750 billion to scare the elderly in their ads.  Now the Dems are going to throw a nice juicy softball for the Repubs to campaign on in 2014.  It makes me sick.
