  •  There is absolutely NO reason to cut Social (5+ / 0-)

    Security for ANYONE. We should be raising Social Security benefits and raising the cap on the FICA tax that funds it, so that the wealthy and the upper middle classes (those making over 100,000-150000 per year) pay their fair share.

    This is going to push me over the edge, from loyallly supporting Democrats no matter what, to voting third party so that at least I can protest. I am tired of Democrats completely ignoring the interests of their most loyal base, using scare tactics about the evil GOP.

    Yes they are evil, but even Bush couldn't cut Social Security.

    Skepticism of all the elite institutions, not trust, is what required for successful leadership in this era. Digby
