255. Social Security funds/Medicare clearly are the target and the prize.
I am convinced that they'll wait until after the mid-terms to move on it.

ALL of the slights against traditional Democratic voting interest groups over the past year and a half will probably pay off as intended as Republicans increase their representation in Congress. I believe they (corporate interests that clearly are running this show) want the Republicans to win back the House and bring the Senate back to as near 50/50 as possible.

They will get Republicans and some Democrats to vote for whatever monstrosity they've cooked up (more Repubs in both houses will vote for it than Dems by far) and Obama will sign it. I don't doubt he will for a minute.

Then we'll fight with the right wing (the masses) over which party is to blame, and we'll fight amongst ourselves as to whether this needed to be done. Divide and conquer, indeed.

God, please let me be wrong...
