Social security has nothing to do with the deficit or the national debt. Until just recently, congress could dip into the trust fund every year for more money . Now that the "trust fund" is full of IOU s that congress has to pay back, they are suddenly calling social security an entitlement and want to chinch out of paying what they owe..

(CNN)-- President Barack Obama's upcoming budget plan, which according to senior administration officials will include proposed changes to Social Security and Medicare plus some new tax increases in an effort for the president to reach a deal with Republicans on deficit reduction, quickly drew criticism from liberal groups on Friday.
The progressive group MoveOn.org labeled the president's proposed changes to Social Security as "unconscionable" and Democracy for America called the cuts "profoundly disturbing."
"Millions of MoveOn members did not work night and day to put President Obama into office so that he could propose policies that would hurt some of our most vulnerable people," read a statement from Anna Galland, executive director of the group.
The budget will include an offer Obama made to House Speaker John Boehner in December, officials said. That proposal included $400 billion in savings to Medicare over 10 years.

"The president's budget to be presented on Wednesday will show how we can invest in the things we need to grow our economy, create jobs and strengthen the middle class while further reducing the deficit in a balanced way," a senior administration official said.
But Boehner said he and the president were never able to reach an agreement because Obama's "offers never lived up to his rhetoric," a reality he said still exists.
"When the president visited the Capitol last month, House Republicans stated a desire to find common ground and urged him not to make savings we agree upon conditional on another round of tax increases. If reports are accurate, the president has not heeded that call," Boehner said in a statement.
For Social Security, Obama plans to propose a switch to a key Republican request called "chained CPI," which is an inflation formula.

Proponents say chained CPI is a more accurate way to measure inflation than the way it's done now, which they say overstates growth in consumer prices. Some critics have said chained CPI is not a better way to measure inflation for Social Security recipients, because they spend so much on health care, which rises faster than inflation.
Go tell your President, it's HIS budget cut. Maybe if Airforce one stayed on the ground more, but wait, what does it matter, last term President doesn't give a crap and now it shows.

North Carolina doesn't need Obama to attack the constitution, we have a republikan legislature.

Obama visited Denver, Colorado to push his sweeping attack on the Constitution and the Second Amendment on Wednesday. While he used several handpicked policeman as a backdrop, not one of Colorado’s sheriffs were included in the event, not that they would have wanted to be given their statement contrary to Obama’s policies. But it was more than that. Sheriffs from 62 counties were kept out of the event because they oppose the Marxist-in-chiefs attacks on the Constitution. However, they would not be silence. They stood and defended our rights and freedoms against the Marxist that now control our government.

Republikans working to eliminate social security entirely is very different from Obama's chained CPI which is designed to make the fund solvent. No adjustments would now even be needed if congress had not been stealing from the fund all these years.

SS doesn't ocme from income taxes. It comes from employees forced contributions. If we eliminate public education, then republikan children would be just as stupid as their republikan parents. Some apparently regard that as progress. I don't.

Richard Burr needs to rode he out on a rail and hung in the street with all the other filth in Washington spending our hard earned money.

Neo-Con scum has dinner with Obama while Rand Paul filibusters John Brennan's nomination because of the Administration's drone policy. I say hang them all and elect true Conservatives.

Stop spending our money and give us freedom!!!

Almost 50% of our tax money goes to banks for interest on the money congress has already borrowed.
Just cancel the debt, nationalize the banks and start over. Lets show Cyprus how its done.

Quite the opposite my friend. I have certainly paid my share in taxes over many decades. I consider it a bargin so far. I can drive on good roads, ship goods on roads, rails and by air, am protected by the strongest military on Earth, and have a standard of living that would have been the envy of kings 100 years ago.
Now , the survival of the USA will depend on our citizens being intelligent and educated. Those who want to move us backward into ignorance and stupidity are the most dangerous enemies of our freedom and even survival. Those who see education as the enemy are unwitting enemies of themselves and are far more destructive to our way of life than all the commies, socialist, liberals, boogy men, Marxist,baby mommas, deadbeats and zombies combined.

Unfortunately, North Carolinians disagree with your perspective and opinion. Your notion is to keep the populous dependent upon government instead of being capable of being independent and self sufficent or self sustaining.

Your teammates have driven North Carolina into the dirt long enough and the populous spoke.

As you have told me before, you don't have to like it, just have to live with it or move. Since I disagree vehemetly with everything Democrat, I am taking the necessary measures to protect my family from the harm caused by democrats.

Unfortunately you are right that too many in North Carolina , including republikans in our state legislature, want to move NC backward into ignorance, stupidity, poverty and resulting servitude for the masses. Republikans are the American version of the Taliban, constantly grabbing for the power to end freedom of religion (and freedom of the individual) to force others into their version of religious fanaticism enforced by law.
In their stupidity and ignorance of history, they even fail to understand that the main reason this country was established was for religious freedom. Stealing all the taxpayer's money possible in the process is part of their dishonest fanaticism. Republikans could not be trusted in an outhouse with muzzels on.

Actually it feels like the government is dependent on me as hard as I am leaned on for tax revenue. Still I realize that our survival depends on an intelligent educated populace. Just because I am surrounded by stupidity doesn't mean that I should accept that as our ultimate goal. I think more North Carolineans share my perspective than you would imagine. As the juvinile frat boy antics of our republikan legislature continue to make NC the laughing stock of the nation and win the republikan race to the bottom, more voters wil realize the folly of electing these intellectual midgets.

Tell all your children, start putting money in a mattress, because a IRA or Roth fund ain't gonna do them no good. Looks like 3 million is the number to shoot for before the gov. comes knocking. If anyone doesn't think this is wrong, like Silver said, "I got nothing". I can't even believe anyone would dream up a plan with that provision, unbelieveable.

People like you are how fascist dictators and murders come to power in governments around the world and kill millions. You are turning Americans into slaves for the state. If you hate being free please, leave, go, there are dozens of oppressive countries for you to go too. But only one that stands for individual Liberty and Freedom. I will not stand by and let it be trashed by people that hate our Freedom.

"commies, socialist, liberals, boogy men, Marxist,baby mommas, deadbeats and zombies combined."
So, I take it by this quote that you believe all these examples of "citizens" exist in this country? Do you like taking care of your examples? Do you think your tax dollar could be put to better use? Do you think your tax dollar should be used to "educate" your example of your citizens? FYI, we are rapidly slipping away from the "strongest military" title. When you consider HOW most kings received the wealth, that's probably not something to brag about. Besides the standard of living in this country is being brought DOWN everyday.
