Now that that affirmative action bastard doesn't have to run again, he's going to throw the Seniors who built this Country under the bus while him and all his illegals reap all the rewards of their hard work.

I am one senior that did not vote for that moron - I tried telling the people how he voted "PRESENT" when he was in the Senate, both State and Federal. No one would listen.

Yes, he is throwing the seniors under the bus even after he accused the Reps of throwing the grandma over the cliff. I also think this is only the beginning.

You are right. It is only the begining. The Medicaid, and Medicare patients with cancer are being turned away from healthcare. Look at it this way. The more people they can kill off, the more money they have to buy freebies for Illegal Aliens, for votes. You poor, and old people have outlived your usefulness.

The GOP will sit back, and let the Democrats ruin Social Security without casting one GOP vote, and when the deed is done they will pulverize the Democrats into oblivion. S S was the third rail of politics, and the Democrats have taken the bait. Personally, it has to be done, but not the way the stupid Democrats are doing it, and it will cost them dearly at the polls.

They would probably get more attenttion if they took up the hearings on Benghazi first, but that will have to wait for a special prosecutor, I guess.The Democrats and McCain, that old fool, think Americans have forgotten about what it means to be a illegal alien, but they have not forgotten. They should have voted that demented old duffer out the last time he came up for election

A Major portion of the Obama's Libyan Security strategy was predicated, falsely, on the ability of the NATO installed "rebels" to provide it.

This stradegy could have ONLY been allowed to proceed because information about the sinister nature of the implanted "rebels" had been kept from the Public by the Main-Stream Media. The "rebels" were divided among themseves, under the influence of terrorists, including Al Quaida, loading with outright rascist bigots and dominated by religious extremists.

Had the following info not been surpressed by the Main-Stream Media, the US would have been obligated to have provided the Security that would have prevented Ambassador Stevens from being murdered.

Obama has to cut Social Security in order to fund healthcare and welfare for the millions of illegal aliens he's getting ready to give citizenship to.

Remember how saint Obama said he'd cut the deficit in half before his first term was up......he raised it by 60%. These idiots still keep voting. But he does give bribes.

Yep - that is when he campaigned on "Change" - he did just that - he took all of our dollars and gave us a penny in "change" back.
