Even as Reality Plays Out in Europe, We Still Don't Seem to Get It.Just a year ago top Democrats were set to give a little on Social Security and Medicare. However, today, a year deeper in the hole—emboldened by President Obama’s victory—they’re singing a different tune.Here’s Harry Reed last week:“I’ve made it very clear. I’ve told anyone that [sic] will listen, including everyone in the White House, including the president, that I am not going to be part of having Social Security as part of these talks relating to this deficit.”Here’s Bernie Sanders last week:“We’re going to send a loud message to the leadership in the House, in the Senate, and President Obama: `Do not cut Social Security, do not cut Medicare, do not cut Medicaid’. Every now and then elections have consequences. We won.”http://www.betweenthelines.us/reality-plays-europe-it/They seem awfully determined to take the United States down.
