More Tagging tips:
A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?
Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.
If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office.
CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.
Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.
Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary:
Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House.
If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state
Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries
that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

But I like the "queen wannabe" analogies. After Erskle lost to Lady Dole -- and especially after he lost to Burr -- I honestly don't know why anyone gives him the time of day. It's not as if he has ever displayed a moral backbone.

I understand even Jim Clyburn may be up for changes in MC, limiting benefits. My calls to his office have not produced any satisfactory answers as it seems he supports MC but also accept to some degree the idea we have to balance the budget. I hope he clarifies his position soon

entrenchment of private, for-profit health insurance as a substitute/forced-synonym for "health care."
by JustinBinFL on Mon Dec 10, 2012 at 07:21:17 AM PST
That is behind giving up two years of Medicare. Of course, the shills are now saying 64 and 65 year olds will get the benefit of the for profit exchanges to shop!
by splashoil on Mon Dec 10, 2012 at 10:47:54 AM PST
or older your benefits are safe. It's only people younger than you that need to be screwed.
by JustinBinFL on Mon Dec 10, 2012 at 10:57:07 AM PST
which was always just for show, anyways. The new talk about raising the age for Medicare sounds like it's looking at a much quicker phase-in, since they talk about how much they'll save in ten years (which isn't much, even if it started right away--65 and 66 year olds are the least expensive Medicare beneficiaries).

name entitlement cuts after they "accept" a lousy 2% tax rate hike on the rich.
I sincerely hope that the Dems do not offer the first entitlement cuts or age hikes, because then Obama will own them.
This whole "what do the Democrats have to GIVE BACK," meme is driving me mad. We've already given and given for the past 12 years.

Grifters from a higher league. One would hope that most of the money being paid to these guys is coming from other members of the choir. It would be extremely disappointing to hear that any public funds were being used to pay for their speaking engagements.

apparently their plan included whole lot of tax increases, including many impacting the wealthy (like no lower rates for capital gains and dividends) that go way beyond what Democrats dare propose. That's why Republicans fell over themselves rejecting Simpson-Bowles when it mattered, and why it ultimately isn't going anywhere.

Simpson and Bowles didn't mysteriously impose themselves on our poor helpless president. He appointed them (and Paul Ryan) to a commission that he packed full of deficit hawks. Even so it didn't reach a conclusion, but Obama has gone along with those who act as if it did, and as if the recommendations of the two chairs were the report of the commission. Obama himself is a deficit hawk; he accepts the Simpson-Bowles premises of austerity and cutting deficits. I know you know this. But if you do, this cartoon makes no sense. Obama is one of the villains, not their victim.
