    This artical is from Huffington post So here you go.

    The president could be on the brink of making a serious mistake, one with grave implications for his political future and even graver implications for aging Americans. If he responds to this election by adopting the Deficit Commission's recommendation to cut Social Security, President Obama will be snatching catastrophe from the jaws of defeat. He'll be responding to the "voice of the people" by giving people something they really, really don't want.

    There is a new cost-cutting budget out today. One of the recommendations is to raise SS full-benefits from 66 to 68 by 2050. Its a gradual transition, so no one feels bad. It cuts $4-trillion off the Debt by 2020, that should be back to $10T. Sounds too good to pass.

    So you now post things from a source you say is unreliable?

    I would hope Obama would cut the social security and medicare and veteran's benefits of all those who support the Tea Party.

    Obama is not a leader. He does not want to own or take respondisility for problems.

    Veteran's benefits? Heck..the military is socialism. So is the government run post office. Both are in the United States Constitution.

    I figured if it came from anything but a liberal source you would blow it off. Who would have thought you did this to the huffington post.

    Obama had two years to deal with Social Security. The alarm did not sound overnight. Instead he used an unaccountable panel to kick the can until after the elections. And he isn't saying a damn thing about these recommendations.
