A Truth Journal: Fiscal Follies: What Everyone Is Ignoring For The Cure: From Denny: Here we go again with the Great Republican Distraction. This time it's the smoke and mirrors about whacking away at Social Security and Medicare and now Obamacare.
Most especially Social Security had nothing to do with running up the precious deficit but to hear the Republicans tell it all "those 47 percent moochers" are running up the deficit with all these villainous entitlements which said moochers have paid into that fund part of their paychecks for years. If Big Business and sloppy politicians had quit slipping their greedy hands into big accounts like Social Security over the past few decades none of us would be having this discussion.
Will the Democrats allow the lies to stand? What will they do about this constant shell game from the opposition party? Definitely it's time for a bold stand and bold thinking to get the job done. After all, the business community is stressing and hand-wringing about driving over the fiscal cliff. This from the same guys who refuse to pay taxes into the system but enjoy corporate welfare taking gobs of money out of the country's collective treasury. Yes, in case you missed it - that is the imagery of really bad sex. :)
