Guess what, Lance?

They also want to ram it down our throats!


Because that would require taking a view different from the "objective" one they claim to strive for.


Because newspapers, being corporate owned for the most part these days, are in the business of comforting the comforted and afflicting the afflicted now? The interests of the owners of the papers are more aligned with the Republicans than with the Democrats.


It appears Ms. Corwin has another Wisconsin connection besides Paul Ryan: the person who put together this helpful website is the same guy who prank-called Scott Walker.


The fact that the Republican plan is an atrocity and that the Republicans want to endanger countless lives in the name of tax cuts cannot be admitted, because to do so would be to bring into view, like some prehistoric horror emerging from the mists, what no "respectable" reporter can say, or even allow themselves to consider.

That the Republican party is now a positive threat to the Republic and must at the least be razed to the foundations before it can be salvaged.

For this is admission that the System has broken down.

And the notion that the System they are so firmly embedded in is fundamentally _broken_ is to them like unto the death of God.


With all do respect to your "the republicans are out to get us narrative", Obama is giving the conservaqtives everything they want ...everything he was paid to give them and all the while the democrats will take the blame. All we have left of democracy in America is two wings of the corporate party and neither represent the majority of Americans.


Funny, my thesaurus doesn't list "overhaul" as a synonym for "eviscerate" - maybe the New York Times has a better edition than mine? Why else would they call Mr. Ryan's proposal as "overhauling" Medicare rather than eviscerating it?

Another question: shouldn't folks working at newspapers care more about threats to the safety net? They may need it soon...
