Call their bluff. Don't back down. Don't extend the Bush tax cuts for the 2%, not even temporarily.
Don't agree to the gimmicky "chained CPI" as a way to cut Social Security on those who need it most; or to raising the Medicare eligibility age; or to cutting Medicaid funding in any way.
You were right; YOU WON; they lost.
Don't surrender our country's finances to these bluffing Norquisters and Randroids, Barack Obama: be a Harry Truman Democrat, not a Taft Republican!!!!
