    That is the question. I believe that if Republicans had been elected 2012 then the country would have been headed towards a rapid disaster. Today we are headed towards a slow decline. Following the disaster there might have been real change.

      Despite the worst recession since the 1930's you didn't see people clamoring for more social programs, sadly.

        The extension of unemployment benefits; reducing the gap for senior drug benefits; reducing the payroll tax for low income workers; and the purpose of the stimulus law.

        In 2010 Republicans wisely ran away from the Ryan budget and worked hard to convince seniors that Democrats cut the Medicare program. It did not work then and it did not work in 2012. But, imagine Republicans running against cuts in the Medicare program in 2014. Yes, Republicans will lie repeatedly, but, the president will get the credit for the cuts in the party will suffer.
