Repub playbook for 2012:. HOW DO THEY CONTINUE TO GET ELECTED?
Privatize Social Security. Voucherize Medicare. Transform Medicaid into a block grant. Dramatically slash funds for education, welfare, and environmental protection.....then campaign on how the Democrats don't care about the struggling middle class and seniors. All the while fighting to prevent raising the debt ceiling and to trigger a national default....and blaming the President for the ensuing economic catastrophe.
Nothing about this surprises or shocks me anymore
