    That all seems entirely arbitrary and over complicated but I'll certainly continue to re-reread it over.

    However, what I glean from your second quotation is that the banks responsible for screwing up the economy in 2008 got their CEO's pockets lined with cash while people with no knowledge of subprime mortgage derivatives were rendered unemployed and foreclosed upon, with future retirement prospects going down the tubes.

    And on top of all that Republicans don't want to not only not prosecute the bankers, but also want them to have free run of the economy, while cutting taxes for the rich and cutting social programs people need now more than ever, to settle a fictitious debt/deficit emergency in a time of serious unemployment, while the DJI, corporate profits, and worker productivity are at an all time high. And all of this was propagated from two unfunded Republican wars based on lies.

    I can see now why people would be pissed at Democrats for even suggesting altering social benefits in any way.

    I will not say do not weep, for not all tears are an evil.
