With QE Yellen taking the Federal Reserve chair in early 2014 and if the Dems take the House in 2014 then the race to US insolvency will be much faster then we think. Look at the damage the Dems did with their majorities in 2008 - 2010, and imagine them with a lock on Congress in 2014 - 2016. We are facing economic, political, and social disaster, and we are racing toward this catastrophe at full speed (no thanks to the apparent failure of the Republicans).
This is terrible for retirees: "Among them is a plan to raise the cost of Medicare for better-off beneficiaries". This is a TAX on middle class retirees.
So the Republicans will not only give Obummer what he wants but also screw retirees? WTF!
Have the Republicans lost their minds? Do they still have a mind? Did they ever have a mind?
Consign then all, DemocRATS, RepubiSHITS, OMarxist, the sociopathis elites, all of them to the toilet and flush it!
This country needs a reset. We need to fold up the Federal Gov and devolve its power down to the States, or the US needs to be broken up into several sovereign regional republics.
Anything but this, this slow grinding death by a thousand cuts by smiling sadists and then the sudden catastrophic collapse.
