    The Republicans are offering a scary field of extremists. Their Tea Party radicals will attack Medicare and Social Security without regard to the harm it will cause our elderly. They are all dancing to a tune played by the wealthiest Americans, and they'll try to warp our political processes even more to allow the rich to get richer – while the poor and middle class die on the vine. Now is a good time to step up and demand compromise on issues, serious cuts to unnecessary programs and a fair tax rate for the rich. We don't need to kill Medicare if the GOP will level the playing field – and stop pandering to insurance companies and HMOs.
