GOP Will Cooperate If Obama And The Demos Give Them Huge Cuts In Social Security, Medicare &

Medicaid. And that includes NO taxes on the rich. That is the essence of the WH meeting.

Will Obama give them any of these cuts?.

1. No ...

BTW, a link to the meeting transcript or someone's detailed summary of the meeting would have been helpful.

3. The word "cooperate" is misused here

That isn't cooperation. It's a demand.

4. You Are Exactly Right - They Have Declared War On The Country

Every Republican who goes on the media goes back to cut intitlements meme every single time. They just keep repeating and repeating that meme endlessly. You just get sick of it.

5. Exactly.

Give them everything they want and they'll find it in their hearts to go along with it? That's negotiating like a two year old.

7. Yes. At a minimum, it appears that he will insist that they accept SS cuts though a chained CPI.

8. No.

 

Obama has the upper hand now - Republicans are going to be seen by the people as obstructionist and get them removed. Permanently.

The party is already in the middle of a civil war, and we just let them look bad every time.

Obama should be strangling them with deep cuts to the DoD budget and transferring them elsewhere.

Plus a real life COLA increase on TOP of the CPI-W. I accept 70% inflation adjustment at a minimum. Also slap in cost of living in urban vs rural areas.
