    to discuss in a Democracy, IMO.

      This isn't about a chat.  I really am surprised that anyone is taking this view.  What are you basing this all on?  You say PUNK'D AGAIN; what are the earlier PUNK'Ds that are leading you down this very bizantine path?

      I'm really trying to understand this, but it makes no sense to me.

        A budget proposal from the WH is a completely non-binding, political document that is meant to be discussed and debated.

        It has no force of law, it is not legislation, it's meant to be discussed and debated.

          we should calm down a little.  That this isn't the end of the world.  That we're blowing it all up too big.  I personally think it's a big deal when the first Democratic President spends his capital putting our most cherished legacy on the block -- a big deal politically and otherwise -- but I appreciate the hair-on-fire problem at places like this, so I listen.

          What I can't wrap my little brain around is the notion that this is somehow not a big blunder and not a much smaller blunder than we think, but an ingenious strategy way beyond our comprehension.  There seems to be a faith in you that I don't have, much as I admire aspects of this presidency and much as I'm glad we're not in McCain second term.  Your idea of this doesn't add up.

            Your outrage is necessary to motivate you to get out and vote for every Dem you can get your hands on who runs on a platform of protecting SS from cuts.

            Get angry, get motivated and vote.
