    by saying "no cuts ever ever ever" and that mentality isn't going anywhere.

    There are well-documented ways to "solve" this "problem". Tomorrow. And until those are put on the table instead of CUTS, the only hypocrisy is pretending that Cuts Are The Only Way.

    I wouldn't call you a hypocrite by suggesting your beliefs aren't subject to your situation. But that tells me right there that you're well-enough off that you don't have to worry about Social Security at all. So I think the word "heartless" is pretty apropos.

    Well, unless you're not well-off financially. You never did answer that question.

    It is time to #Occupy Media.

      And neither is my CPA dad, who is in a nursing home paid for by SS/Medicare. And who considers the Democrats "damn fools" for not trading chained CPI for higher tax rates on the rich.

      And I'm not pretending that cuts are the ONLY way to solve the problem.  I'm just being realistic and pointing out that pretending that we should "never ever ever ever" make cuts is being unrealistic and wont solve the problem- at all.
