    just a couple of more rich old white guys trying to find a new way to squeeze working Americans.  I think any thinking person who played with the "You Fix the Deficit" program in the NYT a couple of weeks ago could have come up with a better proposal. What would have been wrong with appointing some people from business, people with no ties to lobbyists and no political agenda?

        of "political agenda" I should have said no interest in running for office or getting re-elected, which would open the field.  Enough with the rich, old senators.
