  •  Here's what I think (11+ / 0-)

    IF--and that's a big if--this was all 11th dimension chess strategic maneuvering--IF--

    ...then how does it get what I WANT--which is MORE Social Security, not LESS, or the SAME? MORE Medicare, for MORE PEOPLE, not LESS, or the SAME?

    Bargaining to keep the status quo just to satisfy the Deficit Monsters is not what we elected. We're the 47%, and we WON. And every economic model I know of tells me that MORE SS and MORE MEDICARE HELP THE ECONOMY, not worsen it.

    THAT'S what I'm jeering. If, after all this, we end up with the same situation, that's not change...even though I voted for him and urged everyone else to do so, Obama is no progressive. He's a suit.
