Not just the electorate that voted for him, but the electorate that exists in all the districts of all the states. They [We] all grow old, need medical care, jobs and pay taxes and make up the majority of the country.
Why are we sitting here watching a deal be made between POTUS and Boehner, so Boehner can try to keep his job as Speaker and the Republicans don't lose face? Whatever the Republicans want is not what the country wants. It's not good for the economy or the environment or any of us. So why are we playing this game? We have enough information to know that the deficit will fix itself if we stimulate jobs and employ more people and bring the price of health care down. The whole scenario is made up and beyond stupid.
No deal. Let's go over the fiscal speed bump. This isn't a partisan issue. Equal amounts of Republicans will rely on SS and Medicare as the Democrats. Nobody wants these programs altered or weakened except for people that have more money than they could ever use......which is the problem, they aren't using it, they're hoarding it.
No deal. We've all paid into SS forcibly and now you want to breach the unilateral contract when we've toted the whole system. 2/3rds to 3/4 of us don't want your wars and metastasizing military morass money pit propping up and tearing down other countries so we can play regime change. The same contingent wants SS and Medicare instead. So let's do it that way. I care not one whit about Boehner or any of the rest of the Republicans. They're Death Eaters.
No deal. We should be lowering SS and Medicare eligibility to 50. We should be embarking on a Manhattan Project to switch over to sustainable energy and food production. We should have Single Payer.
No deal. The electorate doesn't want it. Only the Republicans in Congress do. This isn't a game.
