3. Farm (Milk) country Republicans have to be brought on board to pass this

Are you beholden to Norquist or are you more worried about getting re-elected in your district?

4. I think it would be better to just do an up or down vote on extending

tax cuts for middle class, extending long term unemployment, etc... Instead of shoving a last minute deal thru the Senate and House that the Dems don't like but just had to do (like the one that had the chained SS benefit reduction the older a person gets - like they have so much more money the longer they live OR increasing the age on medicare benefits or SS retirement age).

Seriously, do they really think 70yr old people should be putting out fires, walking a beat on the street, trying to care for sick people in a hospital, building homes, or even standing for 40hrs a week behind a counter at the CVS or Walmart? All of these things are very tiring for elderly people. I know they just want the pot of gold sitting around for people at the end of their lives, but F- that!)
