    ...a benefit cut. We saw this dynamic in the election when enemies of the program were able to obfuscate their position on these programs based on a "benefit cut" that never happened.

    I've seen this pattern too often. Things get tough and some people default into a position of in-fighting instead of seeking opportunities.

    Why is it Progressives cannot take advantage of a manufactured crisis for a change?

    "There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.".. Buddha
