So we are all waiting to learn: when Obama talks about compromise and reaching across the aisle, is this code for agreeing to cuts in Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security? And will he sacrifice the unemployed by letting the Emergency Unemployment Compensation act expire? The signs are not encouraging.
We need to make clear to him - it's not OK to throw Grandma under the bus! That's not what we reelected him for! And not OK to sacrifice Uncle Freddy who's been looking for a job for over a year!
Compromise? - never mind reaching across the aisle. The Left/Right divide in Congress - and on Network TV - is not the real divide in this country. How about reaching across the street to where the people are!
