You can't complain that he recieved it.

A better place to direct your anger would be at the Tea-bagging idiots that screamed like banshees and gave us the likes of Scott Walker, Rick Scott, Rand Paul and John Kasich...plus super-majorities of wingnuts in those states to do whatever the hell they want.

If you want to ask about "possible" cuts to social programs, you should ask the Tea-baggers..."Hey Bagger, did you vote for cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and Health Care for Veterans????" "Well, did you, you asshat?", or did you think the cuts would only come from "dark-skinned" Americans?

This is not about getting "ponies". This is about what direction you want the country to go, and understanding that it can progress slowly in the way you want, or it can go careening in the other direction in a heartbeat. Do you really think that if we had a President McCain and VP Palin, there would be ANY DISCUSSION about "protecting our Social Safety Net"? Hell no, they'd be chomping at the bit to dismantle these programs.

That is what we need to understand. Republicans fought against these programs from their inception. They lost that battle 70 years ago, but they've never stopped trying to kill these programs. Oh yeah, they'll pay lip service to them, because they have been some of the most popular programs ever created, but never forget THAT REPUKES HATE THESE PROGRAMS! They hate these programs, because for some reason, corporations hate these programs, and they won't stop trying to kill them...EVER!

Let's remember, the Bush tax-cuts are due to expire in 2012. If you want to make sure they don't, then keep attacking the President. Karl Rove must be very happy when he reads DU these days!
