  •  I literally thought was for Defense Cuts (0+ / 0-)

    When I first read the headline I was thinking "Hmm, trade chained CPI for big defense cuts? I might even consider that if the cuts were big enough and killed off a bunch of cold war programs we don't need."

    But actually cutting SS and Medicare for the privilege of increasing spending on defense? What the hell? Who would even consider such a thing? How is that even a trade? Those are BOTH things Republicans want.

    "Hey, Red Sox how about you trade me Ortiz and Pedroia? For nothing, that's the whole deal. C'mon it'll be great!"

    There's a difference between a responsible gun owner and one that's been lucky so far.
