15. I couldn't care less who defends it
Edited on Thu Jul-07-11 05:02 PM by Aerows
It's a dumb position and it's going to have disastrous consequences for Obama and probably for other Democrats.

If you don't realize that, and Obama doesn't realize that, then you aren't living with the reality that most Americans are living in.

When people who have paid into SS and Medicare all of their lives wake up with their benefits cut or no COLA, there will be a veritable shitstorm of anger at the polls.

Hell, maybe the Progressive caucus is supporting it because they want Obama primaried. Who knows, but anyone on board with cutting SS/Medicare is crazy if they think it won't be a political disaster.
