Keith Ellison stands up for seniors, children and disabled over Grand Bargain Deal

Forming the Catfood Commission was political genius. The Commission's goal was to find ways to address the deficit. Conservatives and conservative Democrats ran the commission.
The Catfood Commission made it easier for Beltway Democrats to accept discussing drastic cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. After all, these serious people on this serious commission had introduced it as the only way to address the issue.

Except it was entirely bullsh*t.

Rep. Keith Ellison (DFL-MN) sees this in a similar light (though he may not use the same words). He's opposed to these drastic cuts and is in a position to protect our seniors, kids and the disabled. Here's his press release:

WASHINGTON- Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), Co-Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, released the following statement after Politico reported on the potential outlines of a deal, including $1.2 trillion in new tax revenue and $400 billion in changes to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security
"Any agreement to meet our end-of-the-year deadlines will need a large portion of the House Democratic Caucus to pass. Progressives will not support any deal that cuts benefits for families and seniors who rely on Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security to put food on the table or cover their health costs. Last year, over 80 members of the Progressive, Black, and Asian Pacific-Islander Caucuses stood united in opposing an agreement that cut benefits for these families, and 44 members have introduced a resolution demanding these cuts be off the table.
"There are better options that protect seniors, children, and disabled Americans. We should allow Medicare Part D to negotiate lower drug prices for seniors and by requiring the wealthy to contribute to Social Security on all of their wages, as middle class Americans do now. But cuts like raising the retirement age would cost seniors thousands of dollars, and increase the cost of health care by over $11 billion."

You should turn off the computer, go outside, meet people, breathe deep, take a yoga class, adopt a puppy, go to a workshop at the library, or plant a garden. Please just try and find some inner peace, it breaks my heart to see you so angry with a world that needs our happiness and appreciation so much right now. I'm here to talk if you need someone to listen. LMAOROTFU~!

Sorry that the simplest concept is beyond you. I was speaking of cutting entire programs that are redundant, and government funded studies that even the most simple minded would find ridiculous. But don't trouble yourself trying to understand, we love you just the way you are!

You failed to mention Keith standing up for battered women.

Keith threw a few punches of his own when his wife found out about his girlfriend. MPD has to put a muzzle over both women to keep it from being headlines for the newly elected Congressman.

listen up liberal :

Here are the facts, America is based on ( Judeo-Christian ) ethics. America is blessed because of our faith in GOD and our support of ISRAEL. It is that simple, muslims have no faith in America, in fact they want to destroy our way of life.

__________ remember 58 million Americans did NOT vote for a muslim and we are watching him fall on all aspects of leadership. He is a liberal socialist and he will be responsible for the destruction of America.
