This is not Sports where fans support their teams regardless of how they performa. We support Democrats in Congress because they support the policies that I/we know are for the good of most Americans. A "Grand Bargain" that trades Social Security and/or Medicare cuts to balance the budget must be avoided by the Democrats. If the GOP wants to try theyshould be doing by themselves or we will withdraw our support of Congressional Democrats - no money, no time, no votes.
The proposed "Grand Bargain" will hamstring the US economy for a generation or more. Without the surety of Social Security and Medicare Americans will have to reduce their propensity to consume which will severe hamper teh efforts of future Governments to increase employment in any way. This wil hurt the middle class and poor more than the deficit could ever. Run away. Let the GOP do their own dirty-work.
