"Republicans Will Do ... Something"

     Arthur Delaney gives a good summary of yesterday's hearing before the House Ways and Means Committee. His title tells the story: The Social Security Disability Program's In Trouble And Republicans Will Do... Something.
     By the way, note that Delaney has been influenced by the Republican drumbeat insisting that somehow Social Security "liberalized" disability back in the 1980s. That's bull. That supposed "liberalization" was signed into law by the sainted Ronald Reagan. I don't think you could get one vote in Congress today for overturning even one aspect of that supposed "liberalization."

I think we can assume they will do what they always do. Whine and moan about government overspending until they are put back in the power, then they can start spending money like there's no tomorrow.

Well you almost got it right about the conservatives.... they whine and moan about the government then they cash in (money in their pockets) by writing books and making speeches. It is a revolving door for them. No concept of service to the USA.

This bleeding heart made more money in this area of law during the Bush years. As much as it hurts to say it, from a professional level, invite them all in. Their enemies are in word only. Once they get power again, the approval rates will go back up.
