RE :”Instead, it now appears that every deadbeat in the Country, both legal and illegal has been, and will continue to be cared for, while those of us who have paid the bills for all of these years will be left destitute. I am actually leaning towards a more sinister motive (not to sound too tin-foil-hattish). I cannot really think of a better way to relieve the terminally stubborn and hard-working middle class of its remaining assets, than to do something like this.

I appreciate your personal situation stories, but please try not to overboard with paranoia for your own sake. Medicare is a huge problem that eventually has to be taken care of, but I warned in comments here in January that if Republicans tried to cut entitlements before serious cuts in discretionary spending, like things you always suggest, that they would doom themselves. And they did.

Late last year Obama and Chris Mathhews both were telling House Republicans they must propose entitlements cuts to fix the deficit to set them up for an ambush:
Flashback 2010:Obama critical that Republicans/Tea Party are NOT for entitlement cuts

Then Ryan did what they asked and Obama and Matthews used it to destroy Republicans. I could see it coming, I warned about it here, I dont know what they were thinking.

Did you see that AH who attacked me last night for not drinking his Koolaid?

I agree.

"You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia" - but only slightly less well-known is this: Never be the first to propose entitlement reform!
