  •  Eh, I'm convinced this is what he really wants (10+ / 0-)

    I've now seen too much evidence, dating back to before the first election, that he honestly and truly believes that spending on elderly folks is a big drag on the economy and that it needs to be reigned in.  

    I am convinced that he does not believe that tax increases and stimulus (to increase the tax base) will address the "old person drag" problem that he sees.

    And here's the thing, I'm surrounded by people who believe this.  Who were 100% convinced that Medicare would go bankrupt, like, this year.  That all these greedy old folks are stealing our future.  

    The thing is, those people are Republicans.  And I'm convinced that our president is, too.
