Hopefully Schumer did just manage to destroy a grand bargain.

One thing which isn't said enough is that Republicans don't really care about cutting Social Security and Medicare. What they care about is giving the money to their rich pals, either by stealing the money for tax cuts or through privatization schemes. They're not going to trade anything they care about for a reduction in the Social Security COLA, though the Dems will probably do that anyway.
