67. Depends on how many are affected, how much income is involved, what benefits would be reduced

and especially how soon they will be hit by cuts and changes. If the Rethugs were more patient, their desire to implement "cuts, caps, and balances" would be spread out over a period of a decade or so, but their insatiable greed, blatantly contemptuous disdain for the dependent poor, disabled, infirm, unemployed, and the elderly, and their sociopathic behavior is so deeply ingrained now, that they no longer have the ability to wait it out over that long of a period. Their absolutely wettest dream of all, is to pass legislation meant to eliminate every single government program and service, and ultimately privatize everything with the exception of the three branches of local, state, and federal government and the military, and do it ASAP.
