    but I hope you're right.  I just think the bankers are calling the tune here, and they want what they've been going after in Europe and elsewhere - austerity starting with cuts to retirement security.  We have the least generous public retirement system (meaning Social Security) of any industrialized country, but we still have 70% of the elderly relying on Social Security for more than half their income.  So I hope that the President pays attention to that figure, better than he did the figures showing that $250K is not "middle class" in any real world I'm aware of.
