    Jesus Christ, I wish that meme would die already.

    President Obama put Social Security cuts on the table. Chained CPI is, most fucking definitely, a cut to benefits for seniors.

    I knew that Boehner wouldn't accept the proposal and, of course, he didn't. You can't negotiate with terrorists, fer chrissakes.

    But Obama himself put chained CPI on the table. You expect us to "stand by our man" because ... why again?

      because they would NEVER take it.  So what the hell does it matter if he puts it out there.  Somebody please answer that question.

        You're new here, so I'll humor you.

        An analogy, if you will.

        One night, real late, I walk into your house in order to steal your shit. I have already brought your laptop, stereo system, flatscreen TV, and Wii into my car, when you wake up, turn on all the lights, and tell me to stop.

        So I stop.

        Are you really not gonna call the fucking cops?

        Republicans will use the documentation in a way that will benefit themselves the most in the future.  Lots of people truly believed that Obama and the Democrats stole 700 billion from Medicare, when that wasn't the truth.  Those that did their research found that the money was just shifted around so that the insurance companies didn't get all the money they wanted and the benefits went to the people on Medicare.  Yet, the Republicans hounded the idea that it was stolen.  They played with words, meaning and intent, lies of omission.  How many people really have the time and/or interest to look up every single little detail that the Republicans twist to their needs??

        The thing to do is to get it documented that the Republicans asked for the chained cpi, before you say a single word about it.  I can guarantee that they will say that Obama and the Democrats OFFERED to CUT SS benefits.  They won't mention that they were pushing for it.  They won't mention that it was ever taken off the table.  Just by the single fact that it was documented as Obama made the statement of offering to use chained cpi FIRST will be used against all Democrats.

          contribution. You just said that the R's will distort in whatever way they want. That means it would not matter what the President says, because they will invent stuff. Then you turn around and complain about what he said.

          He who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.
