    payroll tax cuts being the slippery slope leading to a privatization of SS and Medicare?  Are the same people now arguing that letting them expire is the slippery slope....?

    Let's start with reality.  Despite the endless doomsaying, SS remains strong, Medicare is stronger, Medicaid is stronger, no cuts to earned benefits have occurred.  We sound like Wayne LaPierre when we start with Doomsday X pronouncements.    "Sure, he hasn't come for your guns(SS) YET!  He was just waiting for his second term.  Now he's for sure right outside your door, in person."

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

      Last week: 'Obama owns cuts to Social Security by supporting the payroll tax holiday. He never should have agreed to it. Worst. Negotiator. Ever.'

      This week: 'Obama owns the tax hike by letting the temporary payroll tax holiday expire. He never should have agreed to it. Worst. Negotiator. Ever.'

      The choice of our lifetime: Mitt Romney, It Takes A Pillage or President Barack Obama, Forward Together.
