    for you, but it would be for millions of people my age (65).

    Frankly, I think it's dead in the water, but the blowback will linger on. If the Democrats lose the Senate because of Obama's idiotic budget, perhaps this will seem like a more serious problem to you.

    •  have a little faith in the people of this country (0+ / 0-)

      just because we take a tiny step backwards doesn't mean that we aren't taking strides forward.  i promise you, by the time these cuts touch you (if by some impossible chance they actually passed) the country will have it's head farther out of it's ass about social programs and cost of living will be returned to being more generous

      let's be really honest about why these cuts are even in discussion.  it's because current SS recipients hate black people so much that they vote GOP no matter how much they fuck themselves and their kids and grandkids over.  as they die off, so does the self destructive hate and so does the window for the GOP to dismantle social programs
