  •  Robert Reich proposed exactly that (9+ / 0-)

    in early Nov on his blog. Too bad Dems don't listen to him anymore.

    •  It is the best possible solution (9+ / 0-)

      for both the people of this country and the Democratic party as a whole.  So why are they not making this a no brainer?

      It's telling.  I think it tells us exactly what is going on.  Notice the way the tax cuts are being used to deceive people and distract them from the rest of the deal.  Notice that Nancy Pelosi won't answer direct questions about cutting SS/M/M.   They know that this is the Grand Betrayal, not a Grand Bargain and they are looking for some way to keep people from freaking out when they figure out what is going on and to keep people from shouting so loudly about it that Dem Congresspeople will get cold feet. And they are trying to avoid the inevitable blowback and destruction of the party that will happen if they sell us out.  However, they don't care enough to not blow up the party.  They just want it to get done and then leave town and no doubt there is some other huge distracting thing planned for the immediate aftermath.  You can bet that years of planning went into the management of the Dems stepping on the third rail, the propaganda and the manipulation of events to try to handle the left after this happens, But it's not just the left they need to worry about.
