The majority of the social security benefiters(sp) here in America know the Republicons want to take away social security benfits from all seniors.


Obama to blink first on Social Security

The tax deal negotiated by President Barack Obama and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky is just the first part of a multistage drama that is likely to further divide and weaken Democrats.

The second part, now being teed up by the White House and key Senate Democrats, is a scheme for the president to embrace much of the Bowles-Simpson plan — including cuts in Social Security. This is to be unveiled, according to well-placed sources, in the president’s State of the Union address.

White House strategists believe this can also give Obama “credit” for getting serious about deficit reduction — now more urgent with the nearly $900 billion increase in the deficit via the tax cut deal.

How to put this politely? For a Democratic president, this approach is bad economics and worse politics.

For starters, cutting Social Security as part of a deficit reduction deal is needless — since Social Security is in surplus for the next 27 years. The move also gives away the single most potent distinction between Democrats and Republicans — Democrats defend your Social Security, and Republicans keep trying to undermine it.

According to a report in AARP magazine, Social Security has had nothing to do with creating the deficit...kind of like Iraq had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks. :x

Now...If we can call this statement linking 911 to Iraq, let's say, "positive propaganda," instead of the TRUTH, then maybe all these ass wipes can distinguish between fact and fiction!!


...but don't hold your breath on it :roll:
