It’s been the commonly accepted wisdom forever that it’s the Democrats who are protectors of Social Security and other so-called entitlements and that the Republicans are the boogeymen want to gut everything. But here is a video interview with Bill Black on the Real News that talks about the ‘Grand Betrayal’ awaiting us all with Obama’s second term.
