Both parties wary of Obama's proposal to cut Social Security

Apr 12, 2013 Full story: Reuters 31

Republicans, Democrats and even the White House distanced themselves Thursday from President Barack Obama's proposal to trim Social Security and other safety-net benefits, illustrating yet again the difficulty of reaching a bargain to reduce spending and tame the deficit.

?? So when will he give something to his base. We wanted universal single payer, and he gave us the right wing program straight from the Heritage foundation designed to take our wealth and give it to a few rich insurance company CEOs. We wanted him to investigate and prosecute the crimes of the bush administration and he refused. We wanted him to rebuild the economy, and instead he falls for republican austerity guaranteed to continue the depression.

Still waiting; and now he gives away Social security and medicare? I still want to know why he doesn't just change his political affiliation to republican.

Obama wishes to take away folks social security checks? Guess he is now anti New Deal.

His economic policies have already made him Herbert hoover's true heir. A presidency mired in a hopeless Depression... and clueless how to get out of it.

Obama needs to stop whoring himself out to the Party of No. Playing the corrupt and vicious games of McConnell, Boehner and other worthless GOPee scum isn't going to get things done, indeed, it only does their jobs for them.

Remember whose party you belong do, Mr. Obama. Or if they DO impeach you, the votes might not be there to stop it.

That sound you just heard was the Professor's hand being stretched across the aisle.
Gee Prof you know that sounds like you are saying either you believe that the only thing separating the President from impeachment is partisanship and not a lack of charges.
Or you'll favor impeachment if the President makes any kind of deal with the GOP
Knowing that passing any document means getting it through the house
You would prefer gridlock, the state of perpetual crisis and confrontation that gives the tea party it's only lever
Waiting for the next President to fix long term problems knowing full well, there is a chance of their being a GOP President
or am i misinterpreting?

What else can you expect from a president who has forgotten which party be belongs to. He is making a big political mistake by cutting social security for seniors the most likely group to take the trouble to vote. Seniors of both parties are enraged. At one time the democratic party actually stood for something but no more! The last presidential election was the first election I was forced to sit out because of a lack of qualified candidates from ANY party! Now they say hillary may run and her husband played a huge part in taking the party to the far right with his 'third way' and his DLC corporate buddies!

The President is filled with hate for all Americans. He wants to slowly kill off all of us, first seniors.

There's no question that the cost of Social Security needs to be curtailed, not to mention the costs to Medicare and Medicaid. But where are those cuts? Not in Obama's budget, this article notwithstanding. Obama's budget calls for a50% increase In each of these three programs. But, his media people put out this lie that his budget offers to cut Social Security. It's a flat-out lie presented in exchange for further tax increases. Don't read Obama's press releases. Read the data and get informed!

This might be facetious, but then again, maybe not.

How does a blatant liar like Obama receive such idolatry?

He blends in with any constituent he is falsely emulating in order to receive idolatry.

Obama’s logo with the false red, white and blue and empty hole behind is the mark of the Beast. The “anti-christ” arrives very quickly according to the bible, from nowhere and rises quickly from small advances in position. He feigns to be God acting charismatic, kind and loving. He uses 666 names (black, poor, Newton families, women rights, gay marriage, immigration, friend of israel, students, taqquiya etc) to blend in with all constituents. He is a the great deceiver each name. The timing of his power is 3 1/2 years. The public was onto his demonic ways prior to the Nov 2012 election but his brainwashed constituents now too powerful to get him removed. He has a dozen demon helpers, or as we know them, highly appointed Czars. Michelle Obama is one of those helpers. See how she influenced Beyonce and transformed her into Linda Blair in the Exorcist. Then she goes on to stroke Beyonce’s ego by telling her how proud the First Devil is with her ugliness. The Obama logo is an empty hole surrounded by 6 shapes. His followers take on the mark of the beast on their forehead, iow, on very apparent places to show their support. Some followers go even further and put their faces in the hole of the Obama logo. See here,

Whether you believe in predictions or not, there is something sinister about the power hungry, baby killing Obama who has proven himself a liar with Social Security. Senior black americans who are the poorest will suffer most severely from the cuts in SS. The Mark of the Beast, his logo, is something to avoid. Remove it from your car, destroy it, throw your shirts away.

Obama reducing Air Traffic Controllers smacks eerily of the 9/11 airplane crashes. If he is not anti-christ, he damn sure is jihad.

Tell your loved ones to keep away from promoting the fiend and marking themselves with his logo.

Interestingly the Bible written years ago predicts that the Anti-Christ's reign will end in a lake of fire. O is the lake. The fire is anger of the people.
