Deficit Commission

I am fuming right now. The President created a deficit commission to address the deficit, they are stacked with congressman, and wall street insiders. Their preliminary recommendations, surprise surprise, is to attack the middle and low class. Increase the age you can get Social Security, decrease the benefits, decrease the benefits of medicare, and end middle class tax deductions. Awesome buddy. way to attack those who are hurting the most. The only people they left out are the soldiers. The fact that their is even talk of cutting the deficit at the same time we are hearing Obama has caved in and will support the bush tax cuts!! Are you joking? Almost a trillion dollars in new spending? Mostly for the Rich? If they pass that bush tax cut extension than there is no factual way they care at all about the deficit and so scrap the commission. And if they care about the deficit, than the first thing that should happen is to not spend a trillion dollars on tax cuts. This is one of the craziest things I have ever heard. Its like saying I am going to start saving for a house, but after I open and max out ten credit cards, and damn, why cant i ever save enough to buy the house.
