Democracy In Action

This just in: 61% of Americans want to reduce the deficit by raising taxes on the rich, 3% want to do it by cutting Social Security.

So what does Obama do?  He cuts a deal with Republicans behind his own party’s back to extend the Bush tax cuts for the rich, and he creates a presidential deficit reduction commission stocked with Pete Peterson acolytes and other enemies of Social Security, whose draconian recommendations he shows every sign of favoring.

Obama and the Democrats might want to think about this as they wonder why they got destroyed in next year’s elections.
