If you think the majority of people want to see SS, Medicare and Medicaid drastically cut, then I think you would be wrong.

Actually, he has given them yet another issue to run on now.
that's kinda what I meant when I said he's a patsy. these wealthy political donors that run both parties want SS and medicare gone, but they know whichever politician does it is going to be politically damaged.

but since obama went after SS and medicare (and bill clinton went after public assistance) the republicans can hit back that the democrats basically agree with their B.S. about these entitlement being unfunded mandates. then it just becomes a question of how much gets cut. because the democrats capitulate to the republicans so much, it tends to undercut their ability to leverage these issues politically to their advantage.
