Defeat from the jaws of victory? The SS cuts (chained cpi) will mean a Democratic bloodbath in 14. [View all]

I, for one, will have a hard time being motivated about anything. The party, the national party, the DNC had better get right on all of this, and right quick. We are on the cusp on putting some firm footing under ourselves for the first time since I was a small child. But SS should remain off the table. Period. That's *NOT their money to cut. That money is supposed to be entirely off limits to politicos to settle budget issues with. That money is supposed to be in a trust fund. If Democrats stand firm on this, we will be on the right side of history. We will be where the people are. If we cave now, the party will have completely ceded all of the gains we made in 2012. We will cede all of the passion, the motivation, the pride that comes with being a Democrat. Where is my motivation to go out and canvass after the SS cuts? Those cuts will hit the youngest voters hardest, and those are the exact voters we Democrats are attracting. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
