    President was pledging to "reform" Social Security and Medicare BEFORE his first inauguration.

    Here's an excerpt and link to the WaPo article entitled:  "Obama Pledges Entitlement Reform."

    Obama Pledges Entitlement Reform

    President-elect Barack Obama pledged yesterday to shape a new Social Security and Medicare "bargain" with the American people, saying that the nation's long-term economic recovery cannot be attained unless the government finally gets control over its most costly entitlement programs.

    . . . he said his administration will begin confronting the issues of entitlement reform and long-term budget deficits soon after it jump-starts job growth and the stock market.

    . . . "We have to signal seriousness in this by making sure some of the hard decisions are made under my watch, not someone else's."

    You might say that 'it is his plan.'  And this WaPo piece pretty much dispels the notion that the Dems have been 'taken hostage' by the Repubs, if a Grand Bargain is indeed struck.
    Please call the WH, Speaker Boehner's office and your Sentators and Representative.
