From what I've read about their plan, the sacrifice will be made by the middle class and the elderly. The "better America" will belong to the rich.
I feel like I'm on a bus heading downhill into a dark tunnel. I have no idea what's at the other end or if we'll even make it through. We *might* be ok, but there is no way of knowing. It's the lack of any sort of confidence in either choice for bus driver that gets me. I don't think either of them (Obama or Romney) know any more about what's waiting for us than I do. They just act like they do.
