Bill, My 28 years of political experience have taken me to all 50 states. And in all those years, in all those states, I don't believe I have ever seen a major party's candidate for governor in a swing state who has the extreme positions of Virginia GOP candidate Ken Cuccinelli. Cuccinelli is a Tea Party favorite and a right-wing extremist. How extreme? Let me count the ways: 1. He hates Social Security and Medicare. In his book he specifically described those benefits - benefits earned by every American who pays into them -- this way: "These programs make people dependent on government." 2. He hates birth control. He has said people should be willing to go to jail to stop Obamacare from covering contraception. Heard enough already from Cuccinelli and his right-wing friends?

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse: Social Security has a $2 trillion surplus. It contributes virtually not at all to our national debt and deficit. It has long been kind of a bogeyman to the Republican Party that we have Social Security. They want to get rid of it, they want to privatize it, they never liked it. We cannot use this debt and deficit discussion as an excuse or vehicle to go after Social Security which is a separate discussion.

This is the BEST News I have had in years. I was once a highly successful business woman and loved my career and lifestyle. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue eight years ago and have literally spent those yrs. between my chair and my bed. To think we are finally going to commit to the research and therefore possible cure gives me immense hope. Funny how this came out today shortly after Social Security finally accepted Fibromyalgia as a debilitating disease. Oh if I could ride/own my own horse again. Hold and care for my grandchild, and on and on and on~ HOPE is so powerful!
