      •  Goal is push back on program cuts (7+ / 0-)

        Chained CPI
        400 billion in cuts to healthcare
        Medicare means testing

        AARP, Moveon, Crooks and Liars, Thinkprogress and many name individuals are all making the same push.

      degeneracies? I mean names of individuals in the "policy place," not just "Obama," that convenient and obscuring personification. Sending petitions and emails and phone calls to "the White House" feels a little good, but you know the people behind the scenes just snigger at expressions of impotent anger trending toward fury that they know will eventually become resignation and silence.

      Anyone? I would not personally know where to start, but you have to wonder if these folks are just ignorant of realities, missing any of the empathy bones that "liberals" are burdened with, or what. Maybe it's just a kind of "Milgram experiment"? http://www.youtube.com/... but see the comforting reprise, http://www.scientificamerican.com/...

      Who are the actors, the people with their fingers on the switches? who are the test subjects? We KNOW who the ones getting the 450-volt electric shocks are...

      Who are the people who write the memos and "white papers" and can they be contacted? Names and addresses and phone numbers of individuals ("work" locations only, of course, we would not want to be accused of some violation of the PATRIOT Act or whatever), and their job titles and affiliations and histories? How do we reach them?
