    The American public is right about this !  Do not put social security on the table ..BAD IDEA POLITICALLY and morally.

      The president isn't the first powerful or influential Democrat to offer changes to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid in a budget.  I'm not claiming this isn't a bad policy but all of this hyperbole and I-told-you-so's get old.  These overreactions gets old.  These questions of Pres. Obama's integrity and intelligence gets old.  

      This is just a proposed budget, that's it but y'all want to believe the world is going to then fine.  Have fun with that.

      •  The reason I asked you to define Hippie (10+ / 0-)

        you posed that remark to a  Veteran's widow and just because someone is a vet or business person or caring about social security, does not make them a hippie although I think hippies are right about most things.  
        There is no defining hippie in this argument.   We are all hippies if that is what you choose to call us,  who disagree because we ARE right,   Unless you depend on COLA for SS or VA benefits and have no other retirement or investment or care about someone in this shape or happen to know how hard we worked on the campaign, you would be on this side of the so called hyperbole.

        It is bad...very bad....

        blah blah. Hide under a rock. Pretend it doesn't matter that every single Repug House candidate in 2014 now has a great ad, the kind of ad they ran on Medicare in 2010 that won them control of the House. Hide, baby, hide. Your naivete makes me sick. You are the weakness in this movement.
