    differently than you do.

    He is not the antichrist.

    If you don't want any of this to happen, progressive dems in the house can stop it.

    Call them.

    •  Problem with this logic (14+ / 0-)

        We shouldn't have to be battling against Democrats to preserve Social Security.

        What is the POINT of the party's existence if it compromises away its signature accomplishment?

    •  Oh stop with your antichrist stuff. Nobody is (0+ / 0-)

      saying he's evil.  He's just a politician who pulled off one of the greatest bait and switches of all time - twice - in running as a liberal when he's really a moderate Republican.  That's bad enough, but not antichrist evil.

      And I don't think he's negotiating.  He's simply putting forward what he wants.  The problem is that some folks, like you, can't believe that and have to make excuses for what he's doing.  Those excuses have been discredited so many times it astounds me that they continue to survive at all.
