Lets hope it does hit - we'll be cutting across the board. Social programs included. And we'll know that "Gee we can cut entitlement programs, and nothing goes wrong."

The cuts are also evenly split between defense spending — with spending on wars exempt — and discretionary domestic spending, which exempts most spending on entitlements like Social Security and Medicaid, as the Bipartisan Policy Center explains. The total cuts for 2013 will be $109 billion, according to the new White House report.
whoops, no SS cuts!
