  •  To those who said it was 13 dimension chess before (20+ / 0-)

    Listen up!  NO ONE ever puts something on the table that they are not willing to deal away.  The President is NOT playing 13 dimensional chess and he never was.  He is all too willing to gut the social safety net in exchange for some "grand bargain."  Yeah, what a grand bargain!  If this goes through, the Democrats are done.  

    I have never been so disappointed in the President as I am now.  He was given a landslide mandate.  The people spoke loud and clear that they want the social safety net protected, particularly Social Security which has never contributed one cent to the deficit. It should not even be in the conversation, but now for the second time, the President put it front and center on the table.  I am appalled at his callousness toward our seniors and those who need the social safety net the most.

    The President should be dealing from a position of strength.  Instead, he is willing to give away Americans' future in exchange for a bad deal and none that is unnecessary at this time.
