    so what?  Especially wasting time tracking and documenting Romeny's BS here on dKos.  

    Time would be better spent before Election Day forcing Obama to defend Social Security from any "tweaks" and supporting for auto exiration of the Bush tax cuts.  Obama needs his base energized and his repeated waffling on these issues is one easily remedied reason why many of us remain on the sidelines.

      to Social Security. He mentions the need to cut the deficit and "reforming" Social Security every time he makes a speech.  The Democrats in the Senate are already negotiating the extent of the tweaks and crafting the bill.  A group of centrist Democrats in the House has Steny Hoyer spearheading a bill doing the same thing, just in case some miracle occurs and the Democrats regain control of that body.

      Face it - Social Security will be offered up as a sacrifice to the deficit reduction gods, and the tweaking and reforming will not include raising the cap on wage contributions.

      •  Maybe if Obama feels back against wall (0+ / 0-)

        in his effort to get re-elected he will finally give the base what it wants and deserves re SS.  UNbeleivable it owuld take that for a so called Democrat to protect the most successful Democratic program in history.
