36. Let me tell you, the very, very well off sign up for Social Security and Medicare

and take full advantage of both programs. They may not need it, but they'd damned well be pissed off if it ever got taken away from them. Many of the diehard MAGAts would stroke out if anybody put their hands on those benefits. The major reason the rethugs have not won that battle of cutting benefits or doing away with them altogether is because their own base would ride their asses out of the Congress on a burning rail. So I say, let the Dems announce this proudly and loudly, on the airwaves and in the Twitterverse, and let the rethugs squirm as the people give them hell for not making it happen and to override tRump's veto. Let them be the ones to be exposed for the modern robber barons who can only enact legislation FOR their .01%+ and, of course, their Russian masters.
