The End Of The Catfood Commission?

I'm hoping that this rather hasty and too early press conference means it's a big nothingburger.

Twitter rumors say they'll put the home mortgage interest deduction on the block. Yeah, that'll pass.

...yes, they're proposing cutting scheduled Social Security benefits. But it's just the commissioners, not the 14/18 required for any action.

...also raising the retirement age. This guys are awesome, someone should elect them to something.
