Seems we've found the enemy and he is us, as POGO famously said.
To wit, we have none other than (former?) Obama supporter John Conyers:
"We've got to educate the American people at the same time we educate
the President of the United States. The Republicans, Speaker Boehner or
Majority Leader Cantor DID NOT call for Social Security cuts in the
budget deal. THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES CALLED FOR THAT,"
declared US Representative John Conyers in a press conference held by
members of the House "Out of Poverty' Caucus on 07/27/11."
Conyers added ""My response to him (President Obama) is TO MASS
THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN FRONT OF THE WHITE HOUSE TO PROTEST THIS."
and SEE VIDEO Featuring the Conyers' statement:
BY THE WAY -- While massing in front of the White House we should demand
passage of Dennis Kucinich's National Employment Emergency Defense Act
(NEED Act): link to readable text at end of first paragraph:
PLEASE NOTE: IF THIS BILL WERE ENACTED WE WOULD NOT HAVE A DEBT CRISIS
AND CUTS IN SOCIAL SECURITY WOULD BE OFF THE TABLE!! IN OTHER WORDS WE
THE PEOPLE WOULD BE REAPING THE BENEFITS OF 'DEMOCRATIC' CONSTITUTIONAL
MONEY, INSTEAD OF THE BANKING SYSTEM.
