    Why are you saying people will be at the whims of the corporate elite? Where does this fear come from? we have anti discrimination laws, laws against monopolies, and the freedom to choose what company we want to participate in. This right to choice keeps companies in line, regardless of all the government regulation on upkeep and quality that exists.

    Republicans controlling the House pushed to passage on Friday a bold but politically dangerous budget blueprint to slash social safety net programs like food stamps and Medicaid and fundamentally restructure Medicare health care for the elderly.

    The choice in the next election is becoming more and more clear. There is no question which party represents the interests of the wealthy and which party represents the interests of the rest of the country.

    The GOP fought hard earlier to preserve tax cuts for those making over 250K. Today they showed how they want to pay for those cuts...by slashing money from food stamps, medicaid and medicare.

    The GOP war on the elderly, the poor and the working class continues....
    Somehow the Reps made the case that the poor don't want to work, and welfare and entitlements are the reason why we're in a recession. Can't blame the 60 percent who are buying it, because frightened people will believe anything.

    However, I do blame the Republican leaders who capitalize on this fear, and coerce their lemming like associates, pundits, commentators, and media, those who blindly aid and abet the crime.

    Why is it that you Republicans love to hand out corporate welfare but cringe at the idea of providing food stamps and medicare?

    Open your eyes Vich...it is you guys that want to make the poor and middle classes slaves to the wealthy. The GOP would love to eliminate the middle class and they are doing everything they can to make that happen.
    Slaves to the wealthy?

    Have you ever considered the reality that the more "gov't helps" the more people seem to "need it"?

    Why do you think Tax Cuts are giving the Wealthy anything? It's not the Gov'ts money first, it's the creators of the wealths money and the Gov't takes it.

    Republicans want tax reform that benefits the wealthy and cuts that hurt the most vulnerable, the elderly and the poor.

    Anyone on social security, medicare/medicaid that votes Republican must have a hole in their head.

    Disney believes no one gets rich that doesn't lie cheat and steal from the "poor".

    nonsense

    the republican case is that major entitlement reform is needed
