The McCaskill/Corker spending cap
Robert Rich explains "Lipstick on a pig plan"
The Republicons want to destroy MediCare and Social Security,
here is their latest plan. Instead of raising revenues or defining specific cuts to programs , its a plan that mandates "generic spending cuts". That just means those without any political clout get their benefits cut: the poor, the retired, women and minorities. We need to raise revenues not cut the social safety net.
