Obama plans $130 billion in Social Security cuts

Washington : DC : USA | Mar 07, 2013 at 1:32 PM PST By itobin53 Obama plan to cut Social Security posted on White House website. Image: Barack Obama.com Republicans claiming that President Barack Obama does not have a deficit reduction plan need to visit the White House's website. It’s there. And it includes Obama’s plan to cut Social Security payments by $130 billion. The president’s plan, calling for $4 trillion of deficit reduction , never uses the words “Social Security.” Instead, $130...

It's as quiet as an anechoic chamber on this thread... Well let me be the first to beef. I've been working since I was a teenager at 15. I've been paying into SS, medicare, and other payroll taxes FOREVER. I'm directly affected financially by the sequestration and with the services being cut by the sequestration. I'm a vet. Now that the Congress is cutting SS, damn right I'm pissed. Again another issue that will directly disproportionately affect African-Americans. Now where the hell is our...

"There can only be one reason for the president to sell out seniors and mislead the public into thinking that Social Security adds to the deficit. Obama wants a “grand bargain” with Republicans, and Republicans are more interested in eliminating the social safety net than they are in reducing the deficit." ************************************************************************************** I cannot express how disappointed I am to know that President Obama is actually going to offer up...

Well .... not trying to defend the President's actions (I'm still trying to see exactly what's being proposed (this article is more than a little biased!!)... so, I can't make any real judgment at this time) .... but ... just to put things into a little more perspective ... #1 - the proposed deduction in SS payments (as stated by the article) over a 10-year period would equal approximately $19 a month less out of recipient's checks (which is no small potatoes: we're talking at least a half a...

It has nothing to do with how liberal the president is or isn't, it has to do with his campaign promises, and the fact that he is willing to sacrifice ANY [ self-funded, nothing to do with the deficit ] social security merely to appease republicans; and to still, at this stage in the game, even be trying to 'compromise' with republicans at all, is astonishing.

Well, yeah, but .... let's be real!! It certainly isn't the FIRST time he's done either one of those things!! (i.e., offer compromised or put social services on the table!) This is not new. But people seem to be just "seeing" this for the first time. And, I beg to differ that being "liberal" has nothing to do with it!! There isn't ONE "Liberal" Congressperson that would even think about considering to THINK about talking about putting ANY social service on the table!!! For those who thought...

LOL .... it's okay, Ms. Koco!! I'll tell ya what .... cuts or no cuts ..... I totally TRUST that whatever the President proposes or does with respect to the so-called "entitlement programs" ... WILL NOT be something that severely adversely HARMS any of us who are "vulnerable"!! I know people get all weirded out when they even hear the words "entitlements" and "cuts" in the same sentence!! And if they were coming out of the mouth of a REPUBLICAN president .... I'd be crappin' in my pants...
