Why Cutting Social Security Benefits Is Such a Big Deal

Apr 15, 2013 Full story: blog.ourfuture.org 36

Last week President Obama announced a budget that includes something called “chained CPI” as a way to reduce Social Security benefits. I will not support it. And will not vote for any plan that includes cuts to benefits Americans have earned.

The proposal has already sparked large protests by groups ranging from organized labor to nonpartisan veterans’ organization. But what exactly is chained CPI? And what makes cutting Social Security benefits so harmful right now?

THe Democrats constantly whine that Republicans are trying to take away old folks Social Security checks. They do this in every election.

Yet it is somehow ok for Obama to...

Why? Because he is black?

Yep, and they still hate him. All he's doing is everything Bush would have done. He hired half the Bush cabinet to help him.

Bush was incompetent. So was Clinton. How is following in their footsteps a good thing? Not a dime's worth of difference...

Obama is a warmonger. He had no business cluelessly toppling Qadafi's regime and letting the Islamist crazies take over in Libya.

Try a little reading comprehension. No where did I state it was good. I stated that the Repubs still hate Obama even though he's doing the same thing Bush was doing with the same guys Bush employed.

Exuse me for not realizing that Qadaffi was such a sane islamist dictator himself. How many more airliners was he planning to bomb? You have heard of Pan Am and Lockerbie, now haven't you?

The teabaggers hated Bush too. They made jokes about McCain being born in the Panama Canal Zone and called him Juam McCain and they made light of Romney's family emigrating to Mexico because of the polygamy thing and suggesting his father a wet-back for coming back.

They do this sort of thing to everyone... not just Obama.

Everyone who is suspected of secretly supporting a sane immigration policy anyway.

It doesn't matter who defecates at the White House. This country is ruled by six different entities such as the multinationals, defense companies, financial companies, the Jewish coalitions, Lobbyists, etc.
.
It won't matter if we elect black, white, hispanic, women, young or old, poor or rich. They all converge to the agenda of the big six!

The same crap that Reagan/Papa Bush did to Lybia by bombing the Gulf of Sidra and later bombed and killed Qadaffi's daughter! Frack you! You will taste the same medicine you give others! Fracking Yankee!

Rove did that to McCain in the 2000 primary, they also said he was a mental case from being a prisoner of war and he had a black baby. Rove was working for Bush. There were no bagger nuts then. But this has nothing to do with SS.

Ah Ha. You finally admit that republicans are the enemy. Obama caves to every republican demand and you admit he gives aid and comfort to the enemy.
