News Desk: Wall Street 1-Percenter Lloyd Blankfein Joins Bowles and Simpson

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

LOOK OUT! The “all star trifecta” is what they’re being called. It’s the big guns coming for your safety net.

Tell me one good reason I should now start trusting the nonsense Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson are trying to hoist on the less fortunate through the not so “grand bargain,” now that Lloyd Blankfein is now on board.

“I think the (presidential) candidates know how serious it is,” he said. “I think they’re trying to avoid it in part because it is so consequential and serious and the ideas that would be put forward are unattractive to some people.”

If it walks like a duck it’s a duck.

These guys are out for the 1% and don’t give two flying pigs for the people who’ll have to live with less.

Oh, and about that “fiscal cliff,” there isn’t one, unless you consider the fiscal cliff Blankfein, Bowles and Simpson want to throw the rest of us off.

What these guys are trying to do is get a lame duck deal jammed through before the 99% know they’ve been screwed.

    I trust them as far as I can throw an elephant.

    They must feel awfully confident.

    Stop the deal in the lame duck, which Schumer’s tax push helps to do. Reid’s now behind him, which is HUGE, so all they need now is PEOPLE raising hell.
