  •  His word entitlement, is not our word for Social S (5+ / 0-)

    Why is this president intent on destroying himself with his own party? This Social Security cuts and Medicare cuts are going to put him at the bottom of the barrel, not to mention losing everything from the house to the senate and whereever else he thinks people are going to continue to support him. He is finished if he does this. This is not an entitlement, it is earned income, which we did when we were in the workforce, these people are unreliable, and liars, as they continue to tell people these stories that this fund is in this much trouble. They want their hands on this money to use it in ways for themselves while the elderly and misfortunate go without funds.....they are actually trying to ruin this country as we know it....Pelosi, needs  to be kicked to the curb, and so does Obama, and I am sorry I ever voted for him, but then again look at our choices.

      what is the purpose, for the continued existence of a Democrstic Party that seeks to erode Social Security?  Isn't Social Security the very keystone, the linchpin, for the entire party's identity?  What happens to a party with no identity?  Let's ask a Whig.

      Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?

        of a party that cons the working poor into voting for it and then cynically tricks them out of their Social Security.  I hear the other plan is to tell the lower middle class that only the "affluent" will experience an increase in Medicare premiums but they don't manage to tell them that "affluent" has been defined as $40K.  How affluent is anyone with a $40K income?  I mean it was only weeks ago when Schumer thought $400K was middle class.

      destroying himself and his party, he is destroying the people that have worked and paid into a insurance system.  How about when the Senators and Congress people go to collect their pensions, we say sorry, and give them a couple thousand a year to sustain themselves on.
