    If these cuts get passed, there will be a major push for one.

      Well just keep getting "do you want horrible republican X to get elected?" And the republican WILL be horrible, so most people on the left will still vote Democratic.

        and they're willing to cut off their noses to spite their faces so that's why repug politicians fear their base and are very responsive to them. Democrats, conversely, don't fear their base and are sometimes openly contemptuous of them (the base acted like fucking retards by primarying Blanche Lincoln, as Rahm said). Democrats and liberals are so afraid of losing elections they eventually fall in line and Democrats know this.
