  •  Really? (0+ / 0-)

    I don't really think that the majority of Congressmen/women really represent the majority of the people but rather well entrenched financial interests. In particular, any cuts in SS benefits, a program that has provided this nation with a 2.5 trillion dollar surplus since the last time it was "reformed"  is nothing but an added tax on the first $106,000 of earned income whether the "majority" is aware of it or not.  I would welcome any senator to draw a line in the sand, filibuster any "Grand Bargain" and stand up for the majority of Americans. Across the board cuts, and returning tax rates to Pre-bush era rates would be preferable to the long term screwing of wage-earning Americans.

      of governance we have. You want revolution? Go for it.
