Vote to cut entitlements? Then I pledge $100 to primary you in the next election. [View all]

That's the message I'm sending to my elected representatives.

If they vote to touch entitlements, then I'll contribute to replace them with another Democratic candidate who actually embraces Democratic principles. They're entitlements because we paid for them in full, and we're entitled to them, the way we're entitled to the money in our bank accounts.

Shared sacrifice, my ass. The wealthiest 5% of Americans got a $1 trillion tax gift break over the last ten years - let them pay it back, with interest, before we go after the old, the poor, and the sick.
