RIP, New Deal. We hardly knew ye.
If you listen closely, you can hear the last rasping breaths of the New Deal as it lays down to die. For the first time in history, a sitting Democratic president has proposed cuts to Social Security -- the single most popular government program of all time, and a bedrock of the modern American social contract. Well played, sir.
Abe and Joe parse the semantics and the substance of this lamentable move.
