    To keep the GOP pinned in their extremist corner. Bait. To keep the pressure on them in regards to exposing their true positions on SS cuts.

    They would NEVER discuss this issue if Obama hadn't brought the discussion to the forefront. Now they are FORCED to address it.

      ...on blocking cuts on Social Security.

      They don't have to address the budget at all. It's not an appropriations bill. They can just reject it with no comment.

        John Boner will be surprised to hear that.

          ...when the press asked him that question, directly.

          On the other hand, Beetwasher, I don't really know anymore than you do.

          This are my instincts. And, if you don't like and if you don't like them... well, I have others.

            My theories are just that as well, theories!  Neither of us have crystal balls, and we both know in politics.events are.fluid with multiple variables.
