Or sometimes they do it more subtle like.

Take the Bush Tax cuts.

Almost everybody got something.

The rich got huge cuts and the poor and middle classes got thrown a few crumbs. Remember that $600 bucks?

In exchange for that $600, we got huge federal deficits and gave the right the excuse they have been wanting to come after our Social Security, Medicare, and what little safety net we have left. That $600 tax cut that us average schmucks got will end up costing us tens of thousands.

I suggest they leave my SS and Medicare alone. I've been working my entire life paying into it, and I've been paying significant taxes all my life and haven't gotten shit for all that cash I sent them. This is their redemption, they best not fuck it up or they'll have holy hell to pay...you wanna see an old fucker get pissed?.....

We're retired and we have the time to watch shit like this like a hawk.

And we have the highest voter turnout rate of any age group by a long shot.

And our numbers are growing as baby boomers are hitting Social Security age.

Gray power rules!

You wanna unite us old hippie libs and the baggers?

Fuck with our Social Security and Medicare and see what happens.
