  •  So Republicans agree to eliminate Bush tax cuts... (4+ / 0-)

    ...(for now) and that's a "compromise" scenario. Privatization of Medicare, offloading MedicAid, Social Security cuts (e.g., means testing, raise retirement age, permanent war, and a tax increase with no popular opposition. That's a winning position for Republican.

    As long as Social Security can't be said to be "slashed" it will be framed as "modernization" and fiscal responsibility and blessed as a Democratic win. That framing is probably the part of the campaign that'll cost $1billion.  

    Eliminate the Bush tax cuts Eliminate Afghan and Iraq wars Do these things first before considering any cuts
