      the Kool AId

      Go back and read that article as a skeptic.

      1. Why is there a need to put in pressure at all?

      2. The article is all about how people feel

      3. Its not about certainty about what the Democrats will do.

      That's how a skeptic reads that article because there are no on the record facts like 'The White House has taken Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid off the table because Progressives have siad no to any deal with those programs involved."

      That statement is one of certainy. the article you link to is wiggle room.
