  •  A deal on the backs of those most vulnerable? (4+ / 0-)

    Social Security cuts...
    Raise Medicare age...
    No unemployment extension....

    But hey, those making $400K can rest easy (as if that was ever really a problem for them - they are secure in their homes and warm beds).

    Sigh...you hit the nail on the head Mama!  Tweet, FB and shout from the rooftops if you have to.  NO deal that cuts social security/medicare/unemployment on our most vulnerable citizens at a time of great upheaval for the bottom 98%.

      wasn't enough to maintain a lifestyle in some circles, what with boat payments, private tuitions, riding lessons, country club dues, vacation home mortgage payments, and so on. Boo Hoo. Meanwhile seniors regularly have to choose between medicine and food.

      A working man robs a bank and it's a federal manhunt. A banker robs a working man and gets a bailout.
