1. My guess is the Social Security cuts will die in the Senate.

2. I think you might be right.

Maybe a Democrat will step up and refuse to let it out of committee.

Personally, I think we need to fall off that cliff, at least temporarily. My taxes will go way up and I'm prepared for that. Most people here at DU won't see that much of a hike.

3. Maybe somebody will filibuster it.

I agree let's go over the cliff.

7. Other. I do not believe that cutting costs and cutting benefits are the same thing.

Case in point: Cutting the expense of the GD privatized Part D bullshit that Bush put in place and placing it under the Federal umbrella where it belongs would cut expenses and increase benefits.
