    Is Fox news going to give one to the republicans? Or did I miss it? I try to sit thru it gung. When I see the seniors scraping to get buy and they want to cut SS or eliminate it. It makes my stomach turn. Then I see that no new fair share taxes to the wealthy have been made, you know who owns our government. A government owned is a middle class nightmare. If the government touches the seniors, and not the banks again and rich, I believe there will be trouble and for the republicans it will be double. This new committee is a damage control commitee for both. We are all watching.
