"More Demagoguery Please"

Yes, someone needs to lock the "eat your vegetables caucus" and the "pain caucus" in the basement for a couple of years.

I'm all for responsible lawmakers doing responsible things, but when Hillarycare went down the Republicans didn't say "okay, let's do something responsible now" - they kept beating it even after it was dead and then won a bunch of seats.

There's no chance of doing anything genuinely decent with social security as long as the people who want to kill it are in power. The minority may be able to stop social security, but they can't pass their fantasy social security plan.

Besides, while Tim Russert may pat you on the head if you cut benefits, the voters sure as hell won't.
