    They've got to cut into it more or hit Medicare, vets benefits/Tricare.  Maybe they've made a backroom deal for some more revenue but I don't know how.  There has been a lot of talk about reforming the tax code.  I really dread that.  

    But the worst thing, I think, would be a kind of restructuring of Social Security.  I'd have to dig back into some conversations I had with Bruce Webb and some others about ways that they could restructure it that would just basically make those trillions in obligations (the money withheld and spent in the general operating budget, now sitting in Treasuries) evaporate.
