Echoing Kuttner: e-mail to the White House

I sent this to the White House.

Please see Robert Kuttner in today's Huffington Post. The president must NOT allow the political advantage from the huge overreach the Republicans wandered into on the Medicare issue to destroy the political advantage that right now could be the basis not only for re-election, but for retaining the Senate and winning back the House. The administration needs to come up with a strong narrative, including a program of promised reforms centered on jobs and preserving the key social programs, with higher taxes for the rich and closing corporate loopholes... as well as explaining how much of our deficit problem is CAUSED by underemployment. Then sell this, while resisting all attempts to buy into the counterproductive Republican and misguided Conservative Democratic ideas about cutting social programs and undermining the already fragile recovery.
