1. Absolutely. We are lucky that they are so close to 2016 because with an election coming they

have to be careful they do not anger us anymore than we are. That will help us stop them IF we do as Bernie says and stand together, call them and if necessary protest.

3. If Dems don't grow a spine,

 

we'll be standing together in the soup line.

Somebody else write the next stanza.

4. By a huge margin the American people are against cuts to these programs.

We also know that what we want no longer matters.

7. I agree, but remember when GWB went on the road trying to sell the idea

of privatising Social Security.

It didn't go over well.

6. Well, they survived in the mid-'90s when

Bill and Hillary were planning to do to them what they did to welfare. Thanks dog for Monica Lewinsky. She saved our bacon on that one. The Clintonistas couldn't fight a sex scandal and attack SS and Medicare at the same time. So they backed down.

Hillary may get another chance -- and with a GOP congress it would slide through like grass through a goose.
