By looking at the numbers, the only group this really effects is the elderly and their Social Security and medicare. Note that foodstamp dollars still go up, yet social security value goes down. Let's just keep interest rates at 0 percent for the big banks and wall street and continue screwing the elderly who, in many cases, can't risk their savings in the stock market. Interest rates on savings will continue to be less than half a percent. Thanks Boehner. I am no longer a Republican and am going to register as an independent.
