Cut Social Security And Taxes On Rich? WTF?

So the heads of the “Deficit Commission” have a plan to cut Social Security and cut taxes on the rich by a huge amount? Cut taxes on the rich from 35% (soon to be 39%) down to 23%, while cutting Social Security because we can’t afford it? WTF?
Update – And the middle class gives up the home mortgage deduction so the rich can get their taxes reduced?
