Democrats and Obama simply criticize and demagogue these issues. Democrats and Obama simply say they oppose Republican proposals, without putting forth proposals of their own.
Remember when the Dems. said the Republicans were the party of “no”? Who is the party of “no” now?????
As difficult as this issue is, there’s no reason why it can’t be resolved through tough give and take negotiations. But real negotiations require good faith efforts. We can’t just have 0bama get p**sed off, tell Eric Cantor not to call his bluff, and threaten that Social Security checks won’t be issued.
