    To the end of keeping pressure on Obama, and keeping expectations of him realistic.

    It's evidence key to fundamental issues over which he has great influence. What do you prefer to that?

      is that we ignore the evidence. On the demand for "entitlement reform," I've yet to hear anyone point out that welfare -- general assistance and AFDC -- was reformed right out of existence. The Clinton Dems also began dismantling Social Security incrementally, starting with disabled workers. Everything from Medicaid to schools, parks to libraries, has been cut to the bone as the rest of the budget is funneled into war(s) while protecting the rich from taxation.
