Good on Oregon Congressman Peter DeFazio
Advertisements [?]
I hate to keep boosting Massachusetts, but he was born in Massachusetts, where he also went to college.

He was on MSNBC this morning, saying "a bump in the road" instead of "the fiscal cliff."

And he was adamant about not cutting Old Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance (aka Social Security) or Medicare or Medicaid or taking away the home mortgage deduction.

I would rather have my taxes go up briefly (which can be fixed retroactively, when they do pass legislation) than lose the home mortgage deduction or any part of Medicare or Medicaid.

But, boy is the media beating the drum on cutting safety nets, even more so than they did for the Iraq War.
