1. "There is no justification to cut Social Security benefits. No to throwing seniors off

the fiscal cliff. No to a Cat Food Christmas.”

4. Because 2014 will be here before you know it and there's not much

time to suppress liberal voting?

7. Now why would Democrats want to suppress their own base?

Hmm...

10. I can't think of any reason, unless...

they aren't really Democrats. Could it really be that simple?

5. Because members of congress have press staffs who help them write statements?

Looking for a different answer?

6. Most of congress doesn't care if seniors are reduced to eating catfood.

12. I am a recipient of Social Security,

13. Fret not: individually mandated private Cat Food Savings Accounts are next!

This measure will ensure, through the miracle of forced individually purchased cat food insurance products, that tomorrow's seniors never run out of cat food in their golden years. Unless of course there is a crash sometime in the future, and it turns out Wall St. was gambling like drunken sailors with seniors' CFSA contributions and pissed them all away. But that would never happen.

15. Obama will stand strong for a Catfood Public Option

The Democrats have had decades to propose and enact legislation that lets all Americans share in the wealth

But they just keep fucking us over
