If "we" as an intelligent, common sensed, STAY INFORMED mass don’t watch EVERY SINGLE move the Right Wing does, we’re in for a world of hurt and it won’t just be our SS savings accounts and social programs that will be undermined and stripped. The Right has set about to take this Nation back to the "good ole days" with the "good ole boys" calling ALL the shots. These people are sick and their fascists tactics and MO are undermining our democracy in individual states and federally. Our rights and freedoms for all of us are being systematically dissolved at every turn they take.

WAKE THE HELL UP RED STATES and the rest of us need to watch and remove Republicans/Tea Party EVERY CHANCE WE GET. They fear mongered, gerrymandered, cheated and lied to get in in 2010 and the knee jerk racist voters and those that DIDN’T go to the polls are the reason we’re literally fighting for our lives now. They’ve been working covertly and quietly for years now in states to gain absolute power. I fear the fate for Virginia, Wisconsin, Minnesota and South Carolina AND this country if they aren’t stopped from the revenge driven, greed driven, power mongering path they are on. VET YOUR CANDIDATES and don’t be fooled by fake Dems or Independents. The Right will run and lie to put THEIR hateful people and policies in place no matter what they have to do.

The Rethugs think that they have the elderly in their back pocket and that the poor don’t vote. The 2012 election gave them some reason to examine this, but it was WAY too close in my opinion. And now they are trying to set their beliefs in stone with changes to voting laws. They don’t need a majority – just a majority of voters. What are we doing to prevent this?

If the Repubs cut those benefits, they will not see the presidency until they are restored and every one of them will be voted out of office. The way to fiscal responsibility should not be done on the backs of the elderly and the poor – how about we work on keeping fake wars that have nothing to do with anything off the table. That should save us some pennies.

And with the Repubs relegated to the dust bin of history for cutting necessary benefits, that should be easy enough for us to do.

I voted "maybe" as the Tea Party is running the Rep. party and they areintent on doing away with anything that helps the poor and middle class. Pres Obama has not helped the cause by agreeing to the CPI

It is beginning to look like the democrats want to cut them too.

"Will Big Three benefits survive Republican intent to cut them until summer?"

 

Yes –

AARP is against screwing with the big 3. They can mobilize greater outrage than the NRA. And more money.

 

As the tea-partier’s sign said: Keep the government out of my Medicare!

I believe they will be saved.

I have less faith in Obama now that he has allowed chained CPI back on the table. What else will he allow?

I voted "I think so". SS has no impact on the budget so it should be off the table. Period. End of discussion. Medicare and Medicaid are needed for so many Americans and with some of the reforms of the Affordable Care Act that are winding into effect, more and more savings will be seen, but it takes a bit of time. Like Richard, I think Bernie Sanders is an awesome advocate but people need to back him up.

maybe, but honestly not optimistic as the GOP never does what the people want, only what their rich supporters want.

I hear you Dave. Those bastard GOP obstructionists will do anything it seems to satisfy their own lust for power and greed. Hope you’re backing up Bernie Sanders. Go to

I really wanted to vote "I hope so".

Largely due to my health, this poll has been up for over three months.  When I returned home from the hospital, I decided to leave it up. because Spring was almost done.  Early on ‘Maybe’ was the favored answer, but as Summer approached, ‘Yes’ eclipsed it in a tight race.  I was actually the first one to vote ‘Yes’ in the beginning, because while so many were screaming that Obama had sold us out, I saw that he was just giving Republicans enough rope to hang themselves.  Now that Spring has sprung, I am very relieved that I was right.  A special note to A Lucky Republican.  Why do you call yourself Lucky, when there isn’t enough there to advertise? ;-)

A new poll is up.  Don’t forget to vote!

  1. I now see your point about Obama, Tom.  He lets them walk right into those holes. Yesterday, Chris Matthews made a good point, too.  Obama waits and waits, allowing allegations to be made about him and the Dems in general for weeks on end before responding.  He allows the repubs to think their agenda is going somewhere.  I think he definitely needs to get tougher and more strident in dealing with the repubs. Of late, he has been a little more vocal.  I would like to see more of that from him.

  2. They have survived so far, but the next big fight will be in 2014 to dislodge as many Republican/Teabaggers from Congress as possible.  Only until the Republican/Teabaggers are totally ineffectual can people relax just a little about the status of SS, Medicare, and Medicaid.

  3. I haven't seen Obama defend any of the big 3, nor have I seen him defend climate change – he's good on social issues and that's about all – I wish we had other parties that were legitimate enough to choose from – but alas – we're governed by a plutocracy that is in control of both major parties and it seem the dem – wimps that we are controlled by will forever be eager to vote for a plutocratic democrat like Obama – oh well !  we get what we pay for!

    • Lee, if he and the Democtatic party hadn't been defending the Big Three, they would be gone.

      On environment, I'm more inclined to question, but there has STILL been no approval for Keystone XL.

      If you keep blaming him for it, maybe he will approve it, and it will be all your fault. ;-)
