4. The demographic here, and placement of the Congressman in between the old guy and the young guy in the same row, is interesting. It speaks to the GOP wedge strategy. Give the old folks their social security, but cut it to ribbons for the young guy and hope the oldsters, pacified, settles down and young guy doesn’t expect much more.

Congressional Republicans are getting mixed reviews as they pitch their budget plan to constituents back home.
