  •  Oh, puleeeze. That's the most empty pablum you (7+ / 0-)

    could turn to to claim he'll actually "protect" the "vulnerable." Please tell me you're not that naive -- or are you merely being disingenuous?

    Obama's made it VERY clear that he's all for the BS "reform" of SS and Medicare/Medicaid, and that chained CPI is a great way to (bullshit!) address the important deficit problem. Utter crap.

    And as noted above, yes, Dems WILL lose votes -- and any moral high ground gained recently from Repugs -- if they fuck with SS and M/M.

      Do you get regular raises? How sure are you of your annual raise?

      Do you realize that many people have not gotten a raise in 4 or 5 years?

      Are raises guaranteed?

      When social security was started there was NO COLA. There were no changes for 10 years.

      It is more important to put a minimum payment into the Social Security system. They was one at one time but Reagan eliminated that.

      I'm asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about real change in Washington ... *I'm asking you to believe in yours.* Barack Obama

      Four years in a row, was that a "cut?"
