    Does the DNC have a choice BUT to cut others to give to Reid? I mean, isn’t he something like a flagging flag ship? ‘Dump the lifeboats, we must lighten up to make it to the admiral (he says so)!” Or, something like that.

    And the Social Security thing? They can’t win this one. By buying the voters who are angry about spending, essentially in this fix because politicians have messed with the definition of inflation so long it doesn’t fit any real world terms they are cutting their own throats by beheading themselves. Lord, I did not know things could be this funny. Well, okay, I have laughed while dying before, so… I had some clues, but this is serious. *chuckling in contorted ways*
