Referring to rep John Boehner intransegence on budget, Obama said it is a draconian budget because, in so many words Boehner said "we can't ask anything of millionaires, billionaires, and corporations to close our deficit" according to our President. Well, the draconian budget has been passed and we the people will suffer. Since Reagan, and even beginning with Carter, All our presidents and elected officials since, have been pushing our society back closer and closer to the 19th century. Soon children will be working 14 hour days, the re establishment of "poor houses"(for lack of social security), life span for the working and lower middle class will be age 58, and so on. How dare Obama start talking sh!t again as he did in the campaign. Obama is as much a servant of the vampires on wall street and the gansta banksters and corporations/military/domestic&international third world-ization complex as any right winger.
We need and deserve a progressive candidate. However since all too many of even the working class(that includes many "white collar" jobs now) and poor will only vote for someone that is physically attractive with a stentorian speaking style, it is best that whatever money those in the progressive caucas and we the people can raise, and know that social security is not unconstitutional because it comes under "promoting the general welfare", should just buy such a candidate who will take marching orders from not only Sanders, Kucinich, et al, but from we the everyday people of the usa.
By the way, there are also wealthy progressives out there too who should back or buy a progressive candidate who is attractive both in visible and speaking quaility. Warren Buffet has recently said I(and other billionaires like him) should pay more taxes.
