  •  Senators don't care about reelection? Ha! (6+ / 0-)

    That's the only thing they care about. If Senators didn't care about reelection, this Country would be a very different place. That's some very warped logic there to square the circle on your point.

    I repeatedly claimed that Obama would never propose cuts to social security. I was wrong. Then again, I also claimed, repeatedly, that Rick Perry would win the 2012 Election, and that The Supreme Court would overturn Health Care Reform.

      lot them are absolutely willing to risk it if promised fat consulting jobs after retirement.

        These people largely have to face the voters again, Obama does not.

        •  You keep going back to this idea that they (0+ / 0-)

          have to face the voters again.

          They don't.

        •  Did Joe Lieberman have to face the voters again? (4+ / 0-)

          Of course not - and if the anger builds to such a level as to threaten their otherwise-cushy jobs, Democratic senators will go, hat in hand, to K Street for the promise of lobbying jobs after they "retire" from Congress.
