    and made up their minds that this is a done deal, they are actively discouraging people from continuing to fight.

    •  I disagree with you. No one is giving up. (19+ / 0-)

      What people ARE doing is waking up to the fact that a Democratic administration is actively advocating and promoting a policy (re:  SS, Medicare, Medicaid) that will harm the standard of living for millions of elderly and disabled vets and poor people.  People affected by this are waking up and realizing that these changes are wrong, and that their lives are going to be seriously affected by this.  I see and hear from people who are getting active, writing letters and e-mails, calling their Congressional representatives and Senators.  I have not heard in my own circle of even ONE person who has given up.  People are angry and feel that they've been duped.  They're not sitting back and taking it!  They're making it plain to their representatives that they will face a primary if they vote FOR these despicable and unnecessary changes.
