I remember back in 2008 when you ran for office as a Democrat. When did you decide to switch parties? I know you have not announced it but how else do you explain your willingness to slash Medicare when the public is strongly opposed to that. Why would you give up the tool that will allow you to crush the Republican party if you weren't already a member? And your request to extend the SSI tax reduction is absolutely ridiculous. It does not help the economy but it does weaken the most successful government program, ever. And it has nothing to do with deficit, which most Americans really don't care much about. They do care about their retirement and don't like watching self-important people try to steal it from them by deceitful means.
Out here in the real world, most Americans would prefer if you took Medicare/Medicaid and Social Security off the table and replaced those proposed cuts with an equal or greater amount in Defense cuts. You know, like cutting your shitty little war in Afghanistan. Remember, we are the ones you want to vote for you in 2012. Don't think any Republicans will ever do so.
