    ...to reduce the deficit.  That's austerity.

    •  not necessarily. He has (0+ / 0-)

      reduced the expenditures of Medicare while improving the benefits.

      He has to work with the Congress he has. He is trying to steer their obsession with debt reduction in sensible ways.

      He has increased the benefits available to lower income people by a tremendous amount. And if you read his proposal for the "grand bargain" instead of just judging by the ravings of those who have not read it either you might not be so negative.
