"Democrats have no interest in addressing our massive deficit and out-of-control spending"
Actually, they do. But unlike you, Derek Ideological Dogma peddler, they understand that a) spending is not "out of control" and b) the deficit was created MOSTLY by Bush tax cuts and are REDUCING under Obama and will reduce more if congress does NOTHING. Which is it you want to cut the deficit or you want economic growth?
"Democrats are unwilling to take seriously the coming crush of entitlement spending." Again, Democrats understand the SS has not added ONE RED CENT to the deficit and CANNOT BY LAW.
Medicare is a real problem and OBAMACARE is the first step to address it. I know you don't get it - you lack the requisite intellect.
