    It has not gone forward--and it won't--because the GOP won't give one inch on revenue from the wealthy or job creation.  But that's not what the commenter gratuitously claimed.  His/her claim made the accusation of privatizing social security and cheating people out of their duly-bargained pensions for the heartless fun of it.  These policies are right out of the GOP playbook, pushed by ALEC, Republican governors and legislators, emergency managers, and big companies who see a profit to be made by drawing the blood of the poor.   He doesn't name the President directly, but the cartoon blamed him (and no one else) for Detroit's woes, and the commenter didn't demur, but rather piled on.
