229. He didn't get the votes for the binding proposal so he went Executive Order
but that can't by law be a pass/fail lock. Obama is driving this one all the way from the minds of trusty fellows like Judd Gregg and good old Kent Conrad.

You might also look at the collection of dumpsterfucks he assembled to make the recommendations. Its a good egg or two on there but the commission is stacked with cons that have a life mission of gutting the safety net.

Take a good look at that crew and think real hard if they are likely to suggest removing income caps or raising taxes on the wealthy.

Watch, not only will they be talking some steps to cut and/or privatize Medicare and Social Security but they'll have some neat-o ideas for regressive taxes as well.
