    Actually the Ds are scheduled to cut Social Security and Medicare in the lameduck session.

    This deficit cutting session is gonna be outrageous fun. I anticipate riots that make the Greeks, brits and French look like saints. Tho they may be a little decentralized.

    I would love to just cut the whole budget 40% across the board just to bring all of America to their senses.

    The Dems seem determined to sink themselves in 2012 and with reapportionment coming up the losses in the house will be catastrophic.

    agreed. The dems could fuck up a wet dream.

    Why do the poor worship the rich?

    Why do the poor worship the Pope?

    Why do the weak suck up the strong?

    Why do the stupid subscribe to every syllable uttered by the allegedly smart?

    Why do sheeple subscribe uncritically to authority?

    Why do the fearful bow down before the oppressive?

    Why do the skeered suck the balls of those in positions of authority?

    Why are all partisans brain dead idiots without a spine?

    Why do the dems do whatever the repubs want even when the dems have towering majorities?

    Why do the repubs control the agenda even when they are relegated to the political desert?

    The correct answer of course is rooted in our biology.

    I am for it.
    anyone with over 60,000 worth of annual income should not be able to draw SS.
    And the eligibility age should be raised to 70 for anyone currently under age 40.
    All govt employees should go on medicare at 65 instead of the other govt health insurance.

    Done.

    Then they should not pay into it, either.

    Or it becomes just another insolvent entitlement, no longer a savings plan.

    You would have to give more details and fewer talking points to be convincing to anyone not already sold on the idea.
