  •  We haven't heard if from President Obama (0+ / 0-)

    When he says he'll cut SS then I'll be mad. Until that time, it's just a bunch of gutwind and I refuse to remain in a constant state of anger. I have enough to worry about that is real and I don't have the luxury of being able to indulge in stuff that hasn't happened yet.

    As for needing to know the votes. Well I would respectfully suggest that we'll need to get some Republican votes in the House. No mystery or speculation there wouldn't you say? It's hard work and it will mean compromise, but that is the reality of a divided Congress.

    Have a great day, thanks for sharing your passion!

    •  I don't mean the number of votes (8+ / 0-)

      I mean that I want to know what the vote is for.  I'm not rushing out to find votes until I know what we're voting on.

      If we're voting on a public option, or reducing military spending, sure.  I'll do whatever I can to help find votes for that.

      If we're voting on giving tax cuts to rich people, means testing for SS or raising the age, then no.

      There have been too many bad policies going through congress lately to be making blanket statements about support.
