  •  This has become the American way (7+ / 0-)

    Tax breaks to Big Oil, Billionaires, Big Corporations, while we gut the pensions of workers.

    Republicans will have absolutely no problem with this plan.  It squarely serves their divide-and-conquer strategy.  "Government Workers" have it too easy.  They get huge pensions for doing nothing.  Why should we pay their pensions!?!

    It's really a bad joke on the working class.  It's too bad Obama can't go on tv tonight and blast them for this.  Instead, nothing will really happen, and 5 years from now benefits will be cut in half because something must be done.
