Defend It

It shouldn't be too hard to defend the programs you're associated with when those programs are incredibly popular, but for some reason it is. I just can't fathom how Dem House candidates don't run a billion ads talking about how their opponents want to cut SocialSecurityAndMedicare, but instead lost the last election because those Galtian Tea Partiers ran on how *their* opponents cut Medicare.

Yes the Medicare cuts weren't cuts to beneficiaries so they shouldn't be anything liberals get upset about, but that the Dems can't make the politics of this stuff win for them is infuriating.
