  •  The sacrifice is the 99% actually sacrificing (13+ / 0-)

    something tangible, whereas the 1% for the republicans sacrifice the "idea" of raising taxes.  I say "idea" because if the 1%ers' taxes are raised, they will sacrifice nothing, nothing at all. Their style of living will not change one bit.

    But if SS, Medicare and Medicaid cuts are part of this grand plan, then tens of millions actually will sacrifice their health, their welfare, their shelter, food, clothing, healthcare, medicine.

    To put it simply:  Our sacrifice is real, theirs is an idea, nothing more.  We lose our chance at survival, they lose some money that would be sitting there doing nothing other than gaining interest.

    So maybe the meme should be security and health and welfare cuts or interest cuts.  I choose interest cuts.
