As mentioned earlier, since we’re a democracy and all, the 112th Congress (Truman’s “Do Nothing Congress” meet Obama’s “Know Nothing Congress“) can take the thoughts of the people into consideration…
Sixty-one percent of Americans polled would rather see taxes for the wealthy increased as a first step to tackling the deficit, the poll showed.
The next most popular way — chosen by 20 percent — was to cut defense spending.
Four percent would cut the Medicare government health insurance program for the elderly, and 3 percent would cut the Social Security retirement program, the poll showed.
So being a “modern” democracy I guess we’ll just be going after Medicare and Social Security.
Wonder how stuff like that can happen?
Now back to ‘Oprah Behind the Scenes’.
