    you, Obama, and the Dem Congress.

    I'm willing to compromise on on not taxing every Wall Street transaction at 90% in exchange for not touching SS/Medicare.

    I'm willing to compromise on not taxing income over 5 million in a year at 90% in exchange for not touching SS/Medicare/Medicaid/Pell Grants, SNAP, etc....

    I'm willing to compromise on all sorts of things, but only when it's a real compromise on both sides of the aisle. I'm not willing to compromise and make suriving even harder on the elderly and infirm in exchange for taxing the richest of the rich in this country a tiny bit more that won't effect their security or standard of living in any way, shape or form.

    See the difference? That's what you call compromise. Not this weasel, namby pamby bullshit that Obama the self confessed Blue Dog President calls compromise. Fuck the GOP they just got their butts handed to them on a platter. The American public hate them and their policies. Obama and the Dems don't have to cut SS/Medicare/Medicaid for those bastards. And if they do, they absolutely should pay the highest price possible in 2014 and 2016.  

    The Chained CPI will take money every single month out of the pockets of the elderly and infirm. SS is already extremely stingy in it's monthly payments. Nobody can live off of it as it stands, and yet you, a supposed Dem are willing to cut more so that the richest of the rich can pay 20% on capital gains instead of 15%.

    What's the point in a Party if it doesn't have any core values, and won't fight for them tooth and nail after they won a clear mandate in a national election?

    Corporations before people.... it's the American way!
