    Robert Creamer: Democrats Refuse to Buckle to GOP Demands for Huge Cuts in Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid



    In these tough economic times the Republicans are stupid if they think most Americans are going to support a party that believes in making the rich richer and cutting programs that would drastically affect the middle class and poor in a negative way, they need to open their fucking eyes and ears and listen to the majority of Americans, not the Koch Brother and Grover Nordquist.

    Finally developing a spine.

    This is what will win big in 2012. Let Republicans tell seniors in Florida they want an end to SSI. Let Republicans tell everyone they want a Medicare plan that mimics Arizona's Governor Jan Brewer's. Let them tell everyone we can't afford to help people while cutting taxes on multi-billionaires that exact wealth from the American public and egg on 2 wars.

    That will work. :lol:

    The Republican Party has become so out of touch with a very large percentage of Americans. It just hasn't hit home yet, but it is coming.

    The "failure" to reach a deal actually helps the Dems by default, who's going to vote against a party that believes in making the rich pay more of their fair share and believes in opposing cuts to SS, Medicare and Medcaid is touch economic times when unemployment is high and the rich are getting richer? Who would be that fucking stupid to vote against it and instead believe that giving more money to the rich 1% will reduce unemployment and drastically increase wealth?

    OWS, Winsconsin, Ohio, and Pennsylvania are showing that a grass roots bottom up movement is a tsunami heading for 2012.

    LOL, huffington post.

    now who didn't see this coming.

    Of course the Democrats were going to propose cuts ONLY IF they could RAISE taxes ON the American citizens.

    And the little sheep see nothing wrong with that AS LONG as it's NOT THEIR TAXES that are going to be raised.
