President Barack Obama will seek significant new entitlement cuts and new tax revenues

The most controversial element of Obama’s proposal is the inclusion of “chained CPI,” the adjustment that would over time reduce cost-of-living increases to Social Security and other federal benefit programs — effectively, a cut to Social Security benefits.

Wow, what are the deadbeat democrtas thinkin now?

I guess Obama forgot to tell the liberals his REAL campaign slogan - "Makin' the poor poorer and the rich richer"

I saw it on Fox news today. Obama is offering to cut Social Security and Medicare. Disability payments, and all that stuff, arent safe around Obama.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/04/05/ob...

He is just doing that so he dont have to cut any of his real "pet programs", like giving away hundreds of millions of our dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt. Obviously Obama thinks that is more important than preserving social security and medicare for Americans here at home.

I bet the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt is laughing. They aint getting cut out of any of Obamas (our) money. Its just the poor people back home in the USA that are getting shafted by Obama.

I just looked at one of the mainstream liberal news websites, and there was not one single word mentioned about this. That is why I watch Fox, they dont suppress the news like the mainstream leftist news media does.

Thats why liberal leftist dont want people to watch Fox. The left dont want people to know the truth...

Like how Obama is bargaining away Social Security and Medicare, to keep his funding for his radical (and stupid) pet projects fully funded, like giving money to Egypts Muslim Brotherhood. He will keep that going, even while cutting benefits and checks back home.

What's wrong with funding the Muslim brotherhood? I thought the idea of republocans was to wreck America, right? I mean. Am I the only one confused? I say we make a list of all the Muslim Haters so when they come (and they're coming) we can show them where the HATERS live. Did you see where a couple of these little state wimps were pissed because of a low lying sink in the capital building? They said "Muslims could wash their feet in there" .....

Wen the brotherhood comes, I don't want them coming after my family, we don't hate Muslims. We hate state senators. They should come for Sean Hannity and Fox News, not us.

They should head for Crawford Texas, not DC. They won't have to worry about Austin. Korea will,have blown them up totally.

You watch, we will cut the military fat cat budget before Hillary takes over. No more $686 billion to contractors, unless its going I the brotherhood

So you openly admit that the Muslim brotherhood is "coming after" our American way of life, yet you, in cowardly leftist fashion, hope to steer them away from you and your family by bowing down to their mandates. Do any of you liberals have a set of nuts amongst you?

Im sorry, but can you repost this into English? And perhaps clear it up a little so that we can understand something about it?

Lets start with the basics. Are you promoting Hillary Clinton for President? Are you a liberal democrat supporter, or a republican?

Johnny Ringo is the deadbeat. The REDS (TEAPUBLICANS) are the ones that want to give the 2 trillion dollars in the Social Security account over to the wealthy on Wall Street "to let it grow"

Ringo is so GD stupid that he thinks that Wall Street is anything more than a bunch of people who went to school and sit no their fat ASS in New York and figure out how to get Ringos Dumbass money without having to work.

There's your dead beat. Wall Street and Ringo. Both can kiss my GD ass .. Now say something Ringo. I'll meet your punk ass in a johnson city parking lot and pound your GD face into hamburger meat in front of your kids. They need to know that their dad is a GD wimp anyway. Now say something, punk.

The realization that your disability benefits are about to be cut is finally hitting home, isn't it? As for the fight, my money's on Ringo; you'll probably arrive at the parking lot and claim your back hurts too much for you to fight and then ask to borrow a ten spot from him to get some cigs on the way home. Typical liberal.

I thought you liberals were all excited about the stock exchange right now and are putting it's growth at the feet of the great snake oil salesman/grifter Obama? What is wrong with people doing what they want with their Social Security taxes? I mean, the government does such a great job with our tax dollars, right? We Republicans want to give people a choice.. you dumb-ass Democrats want to continue to make shitty decisions for people. lol

When I read Bart's post, I just had this image of him showing up at the parking lot in a 1991 Chevy Corsica with a loud muffler and "Coexist," peace sign, and Obama bumper stickers on the back. He is wearing a stained tank top undershirt, a pair of cut-off jean shorts, and an overflowing belly escaping the bottom portion of his undershirt. His six day growth of beard might look more menacing on someone in half decent shape, but just looks like someone too lazy to shave on Bart.

I can see him with Ace bandages on his knees and elbow, a pinkie ring, all with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth. Of course he would be driving to the lot without a valid license since it had been revoked for him failing to have insurance.

He brought along his five kids hoping Ringo wouldn't show up and he could show them how "tough" their daddy was. Of course it took all of his energy just to lift his ample body from the vehicle.

Ringo rolls up in a 4-wheel drive pickup he shined meticulously after his 10-hour shift down at the plant. He paid for that truck with cash he saved working a few extra shifts each week over the past few years because he don't like being indebted to noone.

He is wearing worn, but neat, Carhartt jacket and jeans, and a pair of spit-shined Wolverine work boots. Some might look at his calloused hands with pity, but he looks at them with pride.

Ringo brought his wife along because he knows this won't take long and she has been looking forward to that steak dinner he's been promising her all week long. He would have brought the kids, but one is out volunteering with the church group and the other stayed down at UT so she could study for her upcoming History test on Monday. Anyways, he's a humble man and he don't like his kids to see such violence.

Anyways, we know how the rest of the story goes - Bart goes back to the housing authority and enjoys his pack of cigs and copy of Soap Opera Digest and life goes on for the loser lib.

I'll say something, you're an idiot. If you would put down that can of beer for a second and try to educate yourself, you would find that all Social Security money is invested in US Treasuries. It never sees Wall Street. In other words, Social Security is investing in the Fed, not Wall Street. Being ignorant and a redneck is no way to go through life.

That is quite true, social security trust funds...

http://www.ssa.gov/oact/progdata/investheld.h...

But, the hidden problem that has not been talked about by the liberal news media is...how uncontrolled deficit spending can and will effect these funds?

This can happen...

http://www.cnbc.com/id/49037337

Yes, if the US credit rating continues to get downgraded, then that can eventually affect the social security trust fund.

Why is our credit being downgraded? Because of two Obama policies that are ill advised, and ultimately setting us up for another 1929 style crash.

Problem policy A...out of control spending.

Problem policy B...Quantitative easing. This is the Obama policy wherin the Fed is buying up billions of shares of private companies. The government is becoming the biggest owner/holder of company shares. And the Fed continues to do this so that stock prices wont fall.

There would have already been a crash long ago if not for the QE policy. But it wasnt supposed to be permanent, like it has become. QE is keeping the stock market up, for political reasons. And it is entirely artificial.

And this is all financed by increased borrowing and increased government spending. Hence is actually adds to problem policy A.

But the Democrats dont want a crash on their watch (that would look bad).

What happens when the "perfect storm" comes together? When we have borrowed up so much debt that we cant borrow any more to continue the QE policy?

Then we get another downgrade just at the exact time that the stock market crashes to the bottom.

Another 1929. And, did I mention,that our currency will be worthless when this happen?

Yes, the US dollar will be the same as monopoly money.

But, Obama is just looking for a short term, artificial solution to mask the symptoms of the perfect storm that he is creating.

Bart, may I call you by your full name Bart Simpson, or just shorten it to your initials BS nothing but a fictional cartoon character could believe the crap you posted. It seems that obama has just pulled the rug out from under the idiot democrats that believed the campaign machine scaring you fools into believing Romney was going to cut the social welfare systems that have created generations of people dependent on the government. You know BS the 47% that pay zero federal income tax and continue to be a burden by requiring the tax payers to fund more jails, cops, rehab centers. Now BS, the Wall Street folks you refer to have gotten richer, richer and richer, while the social welfare fools that continued to support him continue to get screwed. BS, how's your investment portfolio done under obama?
Now BS if you want to meet me and your car is "broke down"" may I suggest the parking lot at the section 8 housing complex where you currently reside with rent subsidized by working folks. Please let me know when you are sober, and aren't cooking a batch of meth.
