  •  But there is--led by the One Percent and the VSP (0+ / 0-)

    who 'define' the debates.

    This has all been focus group 'tested.'  The PtB wouldn't be framing the discussion this way, if they weren't fairly sure that it would be a winner.

    Just read some of the contentious comments on this, and other threads.

    And respectfully, it's rather unfair to claim that Boomers, or any generation for that matter, would 'owe anyone' in regard to how they cast their vote in 2014 and 2016, or beyond.

    I'm sure that you're aware that this Administration has been carrying out various recommendations of the President's Catfood Commission, for several years now.  

    And remember, when he came into office, NO Republicans were calling for cuts to ANY of the social insurance programs.  

    As a matter of fact, Republicans ran like scalded rabbits when Bush brought the topic of Social Security reform up, in his second administration.

    This entire can of worms was opened up with absolutely no initial public prompting from the Republican Party.

    We (progressives) need to face the facts straight on--this Dem Administration appointed the Commission in the first place.

    So the Democratic Party (or at least the Dem lawmakers who cast votes in favor of cuts) should be held accountable, if they go through with the ill-conceived policy proposals that they've put on the table.
