    But can't deny the possibility that you aren't.

      tweaks and reforms? Why the refusal to call them earned benefits instead of the derisive term "entitlements"? Only once during the campaign did we hear a single unequivocal statement that Social Security would not be touched. Since then, it's been nothing but "don't worry, we won't privatize or voucherize".

        A little tepid for my taste.

        I'm not ready to hit the panic button quite yet, but I share your concern.

        Why any of the social safety net is even being contemplated, when we should be "tweaking" and "adjusting" all the pretty bombs and jets and wars instead, is beyond my comprehension.

        Fucking warmongers know what's best for us and defense companies need their safety net kept intact before ours, apparently.
