Sorry, but if our President does anything to cut Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid, then he’s a worthless asshole who deserves to be on the ash heap of history with all the other worthless assholes.
But he’s an inspiring asshole, and maybe a calculating asshole, so he gets the benefit of the doubt, but not beyond 2013.
Perhaps he’s hoping to get back the House in 2014, but there’s no chance of that at all, so get off the deficits, Barack, and do something for the vast majority of our country who are suffering.
What’s needed is the following:
1) Getting rid of the filibuster for good.
2) At least $1-2 trillion in additional spending for a jobs program and infrastructure rebuilding that will cost nothing at all.
3) A willingness to call out the Know Nothings once and for all as a party that cares about only one thing: tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.
4) A Federal Reserve that will raise the inflation target to 5% until unemployment falls below 6%.
