  •  "Near Future" - more weasel words (8+ / 0-)

    If the reporter had been doing their job, they would have asked what "near future" means - next week? next month? next year?

    Every time we hear these weasel words, we know they're trying to distract attention from some controversial and unpopular policy they're trying to slip past voters.

    Near future likely means the time between now and when they sit down for the conference committee negotiations in December.

    That's definitely not ruling anything out.

    I agree with Rich Trumka - touch SS and Medicare and we will destroy your political career.

    If cutting Social Security & Medicare benefits for low income seniors is what Democrats do after they win a bodget standoff, I'd hate to see what they do after they lose one.
