    spending blah blah blah deficits yada yada yada.....which is code for austerity.

    And they do this not when they're in power, but when a Democrat is.

      Instead of raising revenue (taxes0 the cons want to cut everything.

      Who gets hurt?  Why the working folks and retirees and those stricken with catastrophic disease early on....in otherwords, Mitt romney's 47%ers.  Namely the most vulnerable.

      This madness must be beaten back....with clubs in necessary and in politics, there are all kind of clubs....I like out-of-the-blue biting videos of Pubbies rich boys like Darell Issa sniffing haughtily at working folks and immigrants...he needs a few good video "clubs" exposing his loutishness, it might help even in the gated community he represents.

      President Obama has won, the Senate is in Democratic hands, and America now has to recover from the bitter divide that only the Republicans wanted. Hope for today, tomorrow and the future! Let's get to it!
