Non-Sense of the Senate

NON-SENSE OF THE SENATE….What do you think?

Yea or Nay: Congress should reject any Social Security plan that requires deep benefit cuts or a massive increase in debt.

Sure, forcing Republicans to almost unanimously vote no on this question probably won’t have any lasting effect, but you never know. It might. After all, who in his right mind would be in favor of deep benefit cuts and massive increases in debt? Not Joe Sixpack, that’s for sure.

This is how the game is played, folks. More like it, please.
