    It may be happening now.  A lot of this stuff was baked in during negotiations last year.

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

      Was defense cuts, cuts to discretionary spending (NOT SS or M/M which were PROTECTED) and tax hikes.

      Looks to me like Obama protected M/M and SS. YMMV.

      Oh, and then there's this from the guy who supposedly has a super duper, secret, eleven dimensional chess plan to cut benefits:

      Yeah, that makes sense, Obama wants to cut the programs he just expanded.

      Man, if that ain't 11thD chess I don't know what is. He must be an eeeevil jeeenyus that Obama.

      This post is dedicated to myself, without whom, I'd be somebody else. Though I'd still be an asshole. My Music: []
