77. Not a very nice game you are playing here.
Those "worst things" that you say aren't in the letter are the things the commission did. The things that are in the letter are praise for that work.

Why is it that when a Democrat praises republicans, it is always okay because we were just being nice. Why can't they be, you know, honest. How will telling republicans what we think a bad thing? How has kissing their butts for two years done anything good for us?

And which of your heroes is demanding a tax increase on the wealthy? How about rescinding the tax cut for the wealthy that they just got as a gift? Where are the proposals to build jobs? How about eliminating tax breaks for companies that pay no taxes?

You and I both know that everything is not on the table. Why balance the budget by eliminating jobs, freezing children, and starving seniors when you can raise money by bringing in more income. But that is not being considered. Instead the 64 say we will cut. The only discussion is how much and what to cut. Instead of feeding our children, we are ready to call it a victory if only a few starve.

And the last thing we need is the capitulator in chief and his band of corporate advisors joining in.
