  •  What I can't understand about Grand Bargain (5+ / 0-)

    is if Social Security and Medicare are the signature programs of your political party and your goal in the bargain is to cut your own programs -- just what is it your political party is getting from this bargain?   I've never yet figured out why he thinks I would want this bargain?  Even if he was getting revenue from the rich which he isn't why do I care if I'm not getting any of the revenue?  All I'm getting is my Social Security cut.

      It is all Kabuki Theater.  When the dust settles, we'll get the domestic cuts and the Medicare and SS cuts with some revenue in the form of close loopholes.  Of course, other loopholes will be created in short order to make sure the rich don't suffer too much.

      Poor man wants to be rich. Rich man wants to king. And the king ain't satisifed until he rules everything. B.Springsteen
