    So a fringe group right-wing oldsters, who favor privatizing Social Security, ending the estate tax and are members of the looney ‘Cooler Heads Coalition’ (a bunch of climate change deniers who whine that protecting the environment will hamper their ‘prosperity’) endorse Meadows. Well golly day Gertrude.

    Of course, this small group does not come close to representing the views of most seniors.
