    This would be the most demoralizing thing ever.

    It would literally be the final nail in the coffin for the millions of desperate people without insurance, or crappy but still horribly expensive insurance, who are fighting and struggling to stay alive until 65 so they can finally get health insurance.

    The criminal insanity of this move would crush the country.

    When will somebody, somewhere call out the GOP on their
    appalling false "savings"-- taking costs off of the Fed ledgers is not savings at all if you just move them onto the states, or seniors, or individual citizens.

    Cuts will only work if they create savings for the whole Country -- ALL of us.

    •  Is the goal to scare workers into submission? (0+ / 0-)

      I know that's why the Repugs hate the "safety net."

      •  They've never gotten over losing slave labor (0+ / 0-)

        and if you think I'm kidding, just look at a map and see where the wingnuts are strongest.

        IMHO that's their long-term goal: to reinstate slavery by stealth, and possibly under another name.

        If it's
        Not your body,
        Then it's
        Not your choice
        And it's
        None of your damn business!
