  •  I would have overlooked the drone (8+ / 0-)

    strikes if he hadn't put Social Security and Medicare on the table but I'm overlooking nothing from now on and I'm taking no prisoners.  They're really making seniors pay for the Iraq War, tax cuts for the rich, and future drone strikes, wars, defense contracts, etc.  There is zero reform in using Social Security as a chip for a dirty smoked filled room budget deal.  That's not reform.  That's just expedient betrayal.

    If they USE seniors for this expedient purpose now, it is only the beginning.  We're getting no increase in the cap, nothing that deals in an informed way with senior issues.  We're just fodder for the back room deal.

    It's the way this is being done as much as anything that just turns my stomach.  It so disrespectful to the people who have supported the party for so long.  

    It just stinks.
