    Politico, LOL!

    They LOVE anything that is following the corporatist and/or neoliberal model.  They simply criticize (as does most of the MSM) in order to keep pushing both parties further to the right.

    This article is 'pertinent' BECAUSE the subject being discussed IS A MIDTERM ELECTION--2014.  

    The statistics are the statistics.

    BTW, what is your evidence that the Medicare Advantage plan 'are stronger than ever.'  I did read that HHS changed course, and didn't 'defund' the plan as much as originally intended.  But, I've never heard the assertion that you've just made.  Which is not to dispute it either--obviously, I don't see everything, LOL! Would love to see that info, if you have a link, or even a resource name.  

    Support from the senior community will obviously only decrease, IF the Democratic Party continues to talk of, or actually dismantle, the social safety net.

    BTW, some of us point out inconvenient truths in order to save the Democratic Party--from itself.

    IOW--I'm on the side of the Dem Party.  But I cannot support the cuts that they propose to Social Security or Medicare.

    If the Dem Party keeps down its current path (dismantling the social insurance programs), I truly believe that they will find themselves 'in the wilderness' for decades to come.

    Don't forget that the policies that this Administration seems determined to dismantle, don't apply to a handful of special interest groups.  

    We're talking about the 'interests' of all 315 million Americans, here.

    For the life of me, I can't imagine why Dems have even considered going this route.  

    And I hope that every time that I post the WH and Capitol Hill phone numbers, which is often, folks will put them to good use.  ;-)
