    "Recently, President Obama has faced fire from many in his own base for endorsing unpopular proposals that would include regressive cuts to Social Security in order to win a hike in the debt ceiling.

    "Today, while appearing on Thom Hartmann’s radio show, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) — who, while being an independent, caucuses with the Democrats — said that one way progressives can make sure Obama does not enact huge cuts to major social programs is to run a primary challenger against him.

    "Sanders told a listener who called in to protest a debt ceiling deal that cuts Social Security that such a challenge would be a 'good idea.'”

    Stop Hoping.
    Start Changing.
