Election to be a mandate for Cat Food?
I'm guessing yes.
IMNSHO (based on Obama’s interview in VA), the election — the economy and unemployment having now been taken off the table — is shortly going to become about how soon to cut Social Security and Medicare, immediately after the conventions, which are a set-up for it. That will be the “mandate” of the election.
That’s why both legacy parties passed, and Obama signed, the bill mandating that Obama report on his plans for cuts in case automatic “sequestration” kicks in. Obama, campaigning in swing state VA, big on defense, takes big ticket defense items off the table. Medicare and Social Security are, however, very conspicuosly on the table.
And both legacy parties seem to be working together like a well-greased machine.
So, look out. The report is due September 6. Not that I’m foily.
