Well if the Center-Right and Right Agree...

The Chairs of Obama's Catfood commission released their recommendations, and they're just as horrible as everyone predicted they would be. Paul Krugman summed up the commission's findings very well:
So you’re going to tell janitors to work until they’re 70 because lawyers are living longer than ever.

Still, I guess this is what it takes to get compromise, if by compromise you mean something the center-right and the hard right can agree on.
You create a commission stacked with assholes who want to cut Social Security, and stunningly enough the propose cuts to social security.

It's a political albatross for the Democrats and a giant waste of everyone else's time.
