Undoubtedly, Obama proved to be a reckless drunken sailor who realized that spreading money to his Federal union employees, national unions and to the liberal base of Blacks, Hispanics and Asians can keep him in political dictatorial power as long as he still has money left to spend. Nevertheless, Obama does not have money to pay monthly Obama free checks to more than 26 millions of willingly unemployed, poor, disable who will vote for him in return for his check. America is sliding fast down the slippery slope while Obama cannot care less except staying in power like Putin, Chavez and Fidel Castro of the communistic regimes. However, the American people deserve a president rather than dictator who seek bankruptcy of America and isolating Israel and surround it with Mozlem Brother evil regimes with culture of hatred and death. The American people will not go over the cliff with the drunken sailor Obama and his liberal parasites that suck the money of the American people day in and day out and will demand protection the constitution from those who seek to trash it. .

Obama would choose not to pay the social security checks rather say than to cut back on other things because it gives him the most political leverage. That is why he threatened it in 2011. He does not care about the old people he only wants to use them politically. Otherwise he would cut back on something like sending money overseas to rebuild mosques.

I say don’t payout for things in republican districts; let the tea-baggers feel the pain of their hate-filled vote for extremist who don’t want to govern. Although I am sure there will be collateral damage for many people in those districts who aren’t right-wing nuts (very few) it is the price that has to be paid to stick it to those unpatriotic bigots.

Teapussy doesn't have the guts to create or take any cuts home to their trailer park constituents.

Let the poverty-stricken, red state, anti-goverment, old south leeches lead the way, by refusing federal dollars of any kind. Call it your grand experiment. Then beg us to acknowledge you, when you're shooting each other up from starvation and collapse.

The spending has already been approved by congress and the executive. Raising the debt ceiling is usually a mere formality. The republicans are using as leverage it to stick it to the poor. Yes the "willingly" unemployed. What a joke! 30 percent of walmart employees qualify for assistance! The waltons made 16 billion, take home, last year. The problem goes beyond entitlements.

Is this what you think?
"Obama just raised the payroll tax by 2% on all those ""poor people"

You are really a very stupid liar.

Congress did it, and it is restoring a cut to Social ecuurity, not a tax raise...and tehy could have raised SS rates for the wealthy to eliminate the poor & middle income cut restoral, and they refused.

Blame the tea-bags for their actions, not anyone else.

so are you saying you realize the travesty of raising taxes on people who work and have such a hard time making ends meet that they qualify for government assistance? And yet the people who pay them, who could afford a 90 percent tax rate without affecting their quality of life continue to use our tax dollars to help these people. All the while demanding cuts to funding to people who really need help. Did you notice that part 9ball? They don't discriminate as to who gets cut! The freeloaders AND the actual needy are all getting cut. While the fat cats get richer.
