  •  Could you link to that statement because I have (0+ / 0-)

    heard that from many sources but not necessarily the White House.  I want them to aggressively take it off the table...not through Durbin but through the White House Press spokesman.  Obama needs to say SS and Medicare are not up for discussion.  They will work to trim costs but any other adjustments, age, CPI etc....not on the table.

    •  Oh goodness, it's off, so just be glad it is. (0+ / 0-)

      However it happened.

      •  You don't know that until the President says it (0+ / 0-)

        and says it clearly and without qualification.  This is not our first rodeo with this stuff and what he did to Rice is classic 1st term Obama.  It is not a good sign.

        •  That's not necessarily so, but (0+ / 0-)

          like I said earlier, if he caves on the fiscal cliff thing, then you will have something to legitimately complain about.

          If the WH is getting strong push back not to do it, then progressive attention to the matter is working and that's good enough for me for now.
