How Much Are We Supposed to Stand?

In an email I just received:

House and Senate leaders named their members for the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction. Republican leaders have chosen the following six lawmakers: Reps. Jeb Hensarling of Texas (co-chair) and Dave Camp and Fred Upton of Michigan; and Sens. Jon Kyl of Arizona, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Rob Portman of Ohio. Democrats have selected Sens. Patty Murray of Washington (co-chair), Max Baucus of Montana and John Kerry of Massachusetts; and Reps. Xavier Becerra of California, Chris Van Hollen of Maryland and James Clyburn of South Carolina.

Are you kidding me? We might as well plan on dying young, or start the deal in Logan's Run where we all go to "Carousel" at 30. Not one real leftie in the bunch. Not one. Nobody to balance the scales. Bend over, here it comes again!

Seriously, do the Dems think we'll keep voting for them because they're better than the Repos? They're not. They're all politicians, career politicians. As long as they can fool all of The People some of the time they're in like Flynn. Not to mention that half of The People don't bother to vote anymore anyway. This stinks out loud. We're screwed, folks. Screwed, blued and tattooed.

The first thing that occured to me after I saw who had been selected was "they'll never make an agreement". And after that, goodbye medicare and social security.

Right again, Stevil. There's no more Vaseline.

Remember the comedienne Judy Tenuto's line? "It could happen." She'd make some outrageous statement and then say, "WHAT? It could happen!" Same thing with this group of politicos coming up with anything worthwhile. But they HAVE to ... or else the cuts will be even WORSE.
