  •  Best way to deal with the "Fiscal Slope" (6+ / 0-)

    is to allow January 1st, 2013 to pass and let those Bush/Obama Tax Cuts die. Any negotiation during the lame duck session will end in a raw deal for the working class. Let the tax cuts expire, then propose new ones for anyone making under $250k a year.

    But that makes too much sense and the Austerian sociopaths are out with their long knives, ready to stab anyone who isn't already wealthy in the back. That free money from the Social Safety Net would look so much better in their Wall Street casino, they think. Sick, but true.

    I could give a toss about the Petraeus situation. But he was the Village's golden boy, and they'll love getting into every bit of his and his mistresses' private lives to get a story. They love to build people up and watch their collapse with sadistic glee. Outside of their cocktail parties and backroom dealings, these people have no lives of their own.

    The Petraeus deal is their version of Jersey Shore, and they're going to enjoy it. So good luck getting actual news outside of Maddow, Hayes, Uygur, Sharpton, Granholme, Spitzer, and Harris-Perry.

      I suggest we start with the Congressional pensions and health plans.

      Our elected officials should have the same degree of coverage that all Americans do.

      And since the states are unilaterally cancelling pension agreements, no reason why Congressional and Presidential pensions should also be cut, or eliminated.
