The Grand Bargain is a Grand LIE

 Cenk lays it all out here. The lack of honest discussion about this in the media is astounding, even for our lamestream media. Let's call this "bargain" what is is: Robbing the middle class and the poor. Hacking away at Social Security, Medicare, and Medicare. This is bullshit, and I encourage you to pass this piece along to anyone willing to read it. And then let's start badgering the shit out of those useless tools who call themselves our legislators. Your retirement and Medicare will likely depend on it.

 Why the scheme being negotiated in Washington is one-sided and totally unfair
 By Cenk Uygur, The Young Turks

 Excerpt:
...Let me add one other fact, if all you do is let the Bush tax cuts expire for people making over $250,000, you would already have $1 trillion in tax increases. And we were told because of this election that was already non-negotiable. That's what we fought to make sure would happen and the president has guaranteed it. So, what exactly do progressives gain out of this Grand Bargain?

The reality is that this is cost shifting. They are going to move the spending cuts away from defense and on to the middle class and poor by hacking away at Medicare and Medicaid. This is defined as courageous in Washington. What a load of crap. What would be courageous is taking on the rich and the powerful and the large political donors, which is the exact opposite of what's going to happen..." More here.

Lose your SS and Medicare because of the asshole in D.C.?

If your only alternative is to have absolutely nothing but massive debt, why not get free housing from the government?

Oh, you have a family? Doesn't matter to the politicrats. I certainly don't want mine suffering.

And why anyone with a grain of intellect and foresight decides to bring kids into this world right now, well, they need their heads examined. Is it really fair to the kid just because you want one? Consign them to a life of feckless struggles and problems so you can be a parent creating an American Dream...that has turned into the American Nightmare. Yeah, makes sense to me.

It might take a while to sink in, but when people lose everything and they don't have the eggs to revolt, why not just commit a crime? Get arrested. Not murder, but bank robbery, etc. Let the goverment take care of us that way until the jails are even more overflowing.

Sounds like a grand bargain to me.
