No. Not Acceptable Mr. President

Kind of disgruntled today. Sleep patterns all screwed up. Sick of the stupid in the news cycle. Irritated by petulant progressives who demand instant gratification. And now Ezra tells me the White House is backing odious Medicaid cuts.

Dear President Obama. This is not acceptable. The unemployment crisis has made Medicaid coverage critical for millions of poor children and elderly Americans. You can't cut any further without hurting our most vulnerable citizens. I don't want to hear any talk about any more cuts to social programs until raising taxes on the wealthy is slammed firmly onto to the table and defense cuts become a much bigger part of the conversation.

The GOPers are going to do all they can to crash the economy no matter what concessions are made. Now is the time to stand firm for policy rooted in human decency that serves the common good. Nothing less will do.
