    Offering to cut social security to address debt is like pouring water on a house in Seattle to put out a fire in Atlanta and expecting John Boehner to negotiate in good faith is like expecting Francisco Franco to make good on his promise.

    •  Huh ? Now the Teabaggers can vote NO (0+ / 0-)

      because Obama is proposing Social Security cuts?   This has to be a mistake.

      They could not possibly be heading in that direction....could they??

        Social Security. Has. Nothing. To. Do. With. DEBT. Period, end of story, zero, zip, nada. To offer it to the teabaggers is absurd and counter productive, no matter how they eventually vote on it. The only thing social security and our debt have in common is they both involve dollars.
