Trouble is, the American middle class are the ones getting humped and
not just on Wednesday. It's inconceivable that more liberals than we're
seeing aren't decrying this Chained CPI Grand Compromise by Obama as the
unnecessary evil that it truly is. Remember, folks, this Chained CPI in
the 2014 budget proposal is only to be found in the White House's
version, not the GOP's
. The Republicans are smart enough to let
Obama shoot himself in the foot and the middle class in the head while
keeping their hands clean. That way, when dozens of Democrats are up for
reelection in next year's midterms and the Chained CPI proves to be as
disastrous and unpopular among seniors and the middle class as it
already is, they can then use that against the Democrats, especially
those who will vote for this steaming pile of shit.
American voters, with their historically goldfish memories, will forget
that decreases in the COLA and cuts to Social Security, Medicaid and
Medicare started out as Republican initiatives before Obama grabbed them
and tried to make these rancid and destructive ideas his own and they
will then vote Republican out of retaliation.
typical that we're seeing more Obama voters angrier over something that
will affect them and their own than Obama's other Big Ongoing Fuckup,
which is the drone strike program. Because, you know, that's so far away
and kills poor brown people we'll never meet, anyway.
Proving there's not such a fine line distinguishing the legitimately parochial from the merely solipsistic...
