More like the Republican solution for poor elderly folks is to toss them in the wood chipper. The Democratic solution is Social Security. Should they compromise?

Compromise on some issues is not viable.

We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.
