1. The politicians will go after those that they feel

will cause the least amount of noise and monetary backlash.

2. The Social Security Insurance Trust Fund is not a part of the National Debt. Your payroll deduction

is the insurance premium. How dare Corporate America to think that they can just seize my trust fund and use it to pay their taxes or to pay down the debt that Reaganomics created. Wall Street wants to privatize the fund so they can charge a 50% fee on my retirement account/Social Security Benefit like they do when a 401 K is cashed in; yes a 50% fee. How foolish are Americans to let go of their future so Billionaires can set up a Corporate Kingdom.

An Amendment to the Constitution to end US Congressional membership every November could get them to work for the 99%. That would reform campaign spending also. (It only took three months to bring the voting age down to 18.) The Amendment could begin on December 3, 2012. Primaries could start in the Spring of 2013, right after the State of the Union Address. Anyone not working for the 99% could lose their seat. They answer to the voters, the 99% majority has returned.
