    That is the beauty of it.

    We choose not to accept the "inevitable" and the "inevitable" doesn't happen.

    We can raise holy hell, again, and again, and again, and make it so politically painful and toxic to get with Pete Peterson and Simpson and Bowles that the austerity cult gets thwarted again.

    The key is not to get discouraged.

    Not to listen to the concern trolls and the apologists and the deficit fetishists who don't give a damn if a Democrat ever wins another election ever again.

    I look forward to being on the side of the vast majority of the American people once more.

    Cutting Social Security is bad policy and bad politics.

    Nobody who has tried to defend the idea as good policy or good politics has avoided looking like an idiot.  

    I look forward to humbling and humiliating those stupid enough to even toy with the idea that cutting Social Security is a good idea that they will be rewarded for.

    It is actually a good thing that we are hearing this news now, rather than in the middle of a stealth push we get sandbagged with.

    Every time it's news, the bad guys stand a better chance of getting their asses kicked up and down DC.

    You even flirt with trying to fuck with Social Security, we fuck with your careers.

    I am a Loco-Foco. I am from the Elizabeth Warren wing of the Democratic Party.
