Oh hey wait a minute. How can this be? The Progressive Caucus has come out with some words regarding the President’s positions and words on Social Security, and they weren’t YOU SUCK.
Progressive Democrats called on Thursday for the president to keep Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid out of a final debt limit deal, but defended him for putting a restructuring of those programs on the table, so long as doing so did not impact beneficiaries
We feel the discussions have been skewed up to this point," said Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), co-chair of the caucus, who also said he would not support a final deal if it involves entitlement cuts and does not include revenue-raisers. "It's incumbent upon the president to put what I believe are the real priorities on the table for deficit reduction."
But Grijalva and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), a vice chair of the caucus, defended the president for signaling he would be willing to take a look at changes to the programs, arguing there are ways to restructure entitlement spending to save money without hurting beneficiaries.
I guess according to some Daily Kos wisdom this must make Raul Grijalva and Sheila Jackson Lee Republicans.
So, go ahead and set your hair on fire, declare the President a Republican and threaten to primary him, but if you do it’s mighty funny that even the Progressive caucus doesn’t agree with you.
