    contacting their Congresspeople, Senators, and the White House, because I'm hearing too darned much about "entitlement reform," even from spokespeople you'd think would be on our side.  What is it about people when they get to go on television a lot?  I think to some of these "commentators," when they start to rake in the bucks, thinking about losing $1000 or so because of "entitlement reform" means very little.  When you've got plenty, $1000 can seem like nothing.  But most people don't have plenty, and unless we hold the line against cuts in Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, and insist that the wealthy pay their fair share, life will get more and more insecure for everyone who's not wealthy.  Let's insist on really turning that direction around.  Push both Democrats and Republicans on it.
