  •  Wisper was trying to discredit... (3+ / 0-)

    ...assertions that the Obama Administration wanted to cut SS, etc.  The 2014 budget documents the assertion that Wisper finds inconvenient.  That Congresscritters for varying reasons are disinclined to grant the Administration's wish is a good thing, but it does not in any way disprove the Administration's published wishes.

    •  I Doubt CCPI is Even Obama's "Wish." (2+ / 0-)

      At most, it was something he believed the GOP would find appealing in order to get them to come to the table and negotiate a budget.

      It obviously wasn't enough.

      I'm a "right-wing freak show," or at least that's what one nobody on DKOS seems to think.

        Obama campaigned for Chained CPI when he first ran for the presidency, appointed Simpson & Bowles against the expressed wishes of a Democratically controlled congress, and is the only one proposing it in negotiations on the budget. It is also in the proposed 2014 budget. Your willingness to deny reality which doesn't fit your cherished narrative has reduced you to a pitiful caricature of the kossak you once were. I pity you.

        Enough fossil fuel remains on Earth to warm it 6 degrees C by 2100 AD if it is all used. A +6 C planet will only sustain half a billion humans. Human population will rise to 9 billion by 2050. Any questions?

          Talk about lies.

          And I know it was in his 2014 budget proposal from half a year ago and I explained why.

          The only people pushing a narrative are you and others who claim Obama is out to force grandma to eat cat food.

          I'm fine, you can save your pity for you and others.

          I'm a "right-wing freak show," or at least that's what one nobody on DKOS seems to think.
