    I just fear the Republicans will sucker President Obama into "attacking" Social Security the same way they used the reforms to Medicare that actually saved money and actually did make it more viable to beat us to death in 2010.  If so, we will have a repeat of 2010 and lose the Senate on top of losing the House again.  We must focus on the gun issue and the other craziness of the Republicans, and NOT let them change the issue to "the President" being to blame for the sequester and reductions in Social Security, simply because he wrong-headedly tried to find a way to force a compromise (with the sequester) or fell for Republican arguments that Social Security is somehow in need of cutting rather than protecting by raising the income cap.  We cannot get too sanguine about guns as though it gives us the magic bullet to win 2014.  It doesn't, unless we work very hard to make guns and out of control corporate lobbying and political funding THE issue for the 2014 election.

    America needs a UNION NEWS channel. We (unions) have the money, we have the talent. Don't buy 30 second time slots on corporate media, union leaders; fund your own cable news channel and tell the real story 24/7/365
